Street Classification System (Map)

The Street Classification system determines the function or “mission” of each street in the City’s street system. A street’s functional classification determines what type of traffic should use the street – regional, intra-city, or neighborhood. The type of traffic, combined with the expected traffic volumes, determines whether a street is an arterial, collector, or local street.

The map below shows the Street Functional Classifications as adopted in the Salem Transportation System Plan.
