Memphis MPO’s Functional Classification System
Urban Interstate: Urbanized Area routes recognized by the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways. Urban Interstates provided a superior network of limited access, divided highways offering high levels of mobility while linking major urban areas.
Rural Interstate: Routes recognized by the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways. Rural Interstates provided a superior network of limited access, divided highways offering high levels of mobility while linking major urban areas.
Urban Other Freeway and Expressway: Urbanized Area routes offering directional travel lanes usually separated by some type of physical barrier. Urban Other Freeways and Expressways can access and egress points limited to on- and off-ramp locations or very limited number of at-grade intersections.
Urban Other Principal Arterial: Urbanized Area routes that serve major centers of metropolitan areas, provide a high degree of mobility, and also provide mobility through rural areas. Urban Other Principal Arterials, unlike Freeways, Expressways and Interstates, serve abutting land uses can be directly and serve demand for intra-area travel between the central business district and outlying residential areas.
Rural Other Principal Arterial: Routes designated to connect all or nearly all Urbanized Areas and a large majority of Urban Clusters. Rural Other Principal Arterials provide an integrated network of continuous routes without dead ends.
Urban Minor Arterial: Urbanized Area routes that offer connectivity to the Principal Arterial system. Urban Minor Arterials provide more land access than Principal Arterials without penetrating identifiable neighborhoods.
Rural Minor Arterial: Routes that link cities and larger towns and form an integrated network providing interstate and intercounty service. Rural Minor Arterials provide service to corridors with trip lengths and travel density greater than those served by Rural Collectors and Local Roads and with relatively high travel speeds and minimum interference to through movement.
Urban Collector: Urbanized Area routes that serve a critical role in the roadway network by gathering traffic from Local Roads and funneling them to the Arterial network. Urban Collectors serve both land access and traffic circulation in residential, and commercial/industrial areas.
Rural Collector: Routes that serve primarily intra-county travel, not statewide, and constitute shorter travel distances than on Arterial routes. Consequently, more moderate speeds may be posted; Rural Collectors can be subdivided into two subcategories: Major and Minor.
Rural Major Collector: Routes longer in length, lower connecting driveway densities, higher speed limits, and higher annual average traffic volumes, than their Rural Minor Collectors counterparts. Rural Major Collectors link any county seat not on an Arterial route with nearby larger towns and cities or with Arterial routes.
Rural Minor Collector: Routes consistent with population density, to collect traffic from Local Roads and bring all developed areas within reasonable distance of a Collector. Rural Minor Collectors provide service to smaller communities not served by a higher class facility and link locally important traffic generators with their rural interlands.

Regional Transportation Infrastructure: Existing Bicycle Facilities
The data included in this map was provided to the MPO by various member agencies and local agencies within the MPO's Planning Area.
- Bike Lane: A division of a road marked with painted lines and dedicated to bicycle traffic
- Cycle Track: A division of a road dedicated to bicycle traffic and with physical barriers (i.e. bollards or a raised median) to motorized traffic
- Marked Shared Roadway: A road with pavement markings that indicates bicycle traffic may occupy the full lane
- Paved Shoulder: Paved outside portion of the roadway adjacent to the travel lane that may serve bicycle traffic
- Shared Use Path: Paved off-road facility used for transportation and recreation by bicycle and pedestrian traffic
- Signed Shared Roadway: A roadway with signage indicating shared car and bicycle use
- Trail: An unpaved path

Memphis MPO’s Congestion Management Process (CMP) Dashboard
- Peak Hours of Excessive Delay (PHED) per Mile: The threshold for excessive delay is based on the travel time at 20 miles per hour or 60% of the posted speed limit travel time, whichever is greater, and is measured in 15-minute intervals. The annual hours of PHED per mile measure divides the total annual hours of peak hour excessive delay along a segment by the total length (in miles) of the segment.
- Level of Travel Time Reliability (LOTTR): LOTTR is defined as the ratio of the longer travel times (80th percentile) to a normal travel time (50th percentile), and segments with a ratio of 1.50 or higher are considered unreliable. This calculation is conducted during 4 time periods; 1) Weekdays 6 A.M.-10 A.M. 2) Weekdays 10 A.M.- 4 P.M. 3) Weekdays 4 P.M-8 P.M 4) Weekends 6 A.M. to 8 P.M. In order for a segment to be considered reliable, the LOTTR ratio must be below 1.50 for all four time periods.
- Truck Travel Time Reliability Index (TTTR): The TTTR ratio is generated by dividing the 95th percentile truck travel time by the 50th percentile truck travel time for each reporting segment. Reporting is divided into five periods: 1) Weekdays 6 A.M.-10 A.M. 2) Weekdays 10 A.M.-4 P.M. 3) Weekdays 4 P.M.-8 P.M. 4) Weekends 6 A.M.-8 P.M. 5) Overnights for all days 8 P.M.-6 A.M. The TTTR Index is generated by multiplying each segment’s largest ratio of the five periods by its length, then dividing the sum of all length-weighted segments by the total length of Interstate.
