FUNDAMENTAL TO THE THEORY OF HIGHWAY CLASSIFICATION IS RECOGNITION OF THE NEED FOR A CONTINUING REVIEW OF THE HIGHWAY CLASSIFICATION PROCESS. PROCEDURES USED IN MICHIGAN ARE DISCUSSED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT HIGHWAY CLASSIFICATION AND THE RESULTANT DETERMINATION OF THE STATE TRUNKLINE SYSTEM, THE COUNTY ROAD SYSTEM, AND THE CITY STREET SYSTEM ARE BASIC, ESSENTIAL AND OVER-RIDING ELEMENTS OF HIGHWAY PLANNING AND ADMINISTRATION. THE CLASSIFICATION PROCESS IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FULLY INTEGRATED NETWORK OF ROADS SEGREGATED INTO MANAGEABLE UNITS, SO AS TO PROPERLY ALLOCATE JURISDICTION, FINANCIAL, AND ADMINISTRATIVE RESPONSIBILITIES.
