Press Release

Federal Functional Classification System Change Packet

One roadway has a proposed change to its federal functional classification. The Federal Functional Classification System designates Federal Aid Highways, which are eligible for federal funding. The functional classification should match how the roadway is currently used. Roadways must have a minimum classification of Collector to be eligible for federal funding.

The following information is a summary of the submitted application materials.

MoDOT has requested the following change to the federal functional classification system. The application is included.

  • Republic Street/Glenstone Avenue/OR 60 (Roundabout), from west of the EB US 60 off ramp to North of Glenstone roundabout
    Current Functional Classification – Primary Arterial
    Requested Functional Classification – Expressway
    Major Thoroughfare Plan – Primary Arterial/Expressway

    Reasoning – Construction of new roundabout and removal of EB on ramp changed how the Functional Classification connected in this area. These changes need to be made to maintain the continuity of the FC system.
