Because there are no rural arterial roads under local jurisdiction in South Dakota, guidelines on rural arterials are omitted from this document. It is important to note that these are guidelines and Rural highway planning system book mandatory standards.

More detailed information on the design of rural roads may be found in the SDDOT Secondary and Off-System Road. The same-numbered highway can comprise sections of road under different categories.

Highway Functional Classification: Concepts, Criteria and Procedures 2 In conducting functional classification updates, State departments of transportation (DOTs) strive for consensus with potentially dozens of agencies, including metropolitan and rural planning.

Identifying needs and making a range of recommendations for rural Tennessee’s transportation system is a goal of TDOT's Long Range Planning Division. Once completed, the Rural Regional Transportation Plans will be used for additional future studies, identification for county-level transportation plans, as well as any additional needs recognized.

It has widened the scope by adopting the principles of quality assurance as laid down by the IRC. Volume-I of this handbook deals with the quality management system and quality control.

In the more densely populated States, this system of highway may not include all heavily traveled routes which are multi-lane facilities. It is likely, however, that in the majority of States the principal arterial system will include all existing rural freeways.

The principal arterial system is stratified into the following two subsystems.

[Daniel Dornan; Carrie Saalfeld; United States. Office of Highway Planning.] -- Transportation resources are the funds, personnel, facilities, and equipment that local jurisdictions use to provide transportation services to local residents. Highway planning is the overall process of establishing policies, goals, investment strategies, and design standards to guide future needs related to the safe and efficient movement of people and goods to destinations.

It is a collaborative process that incorporates the input of many stakeholders.
