Functional Classification is the process by which streets and highways are grouped into classes, or systems, according to the character of service that they are intended to provide.

Urban and Rural areas have fundamentally different characteristics as to density and types of land use, density of street and highway networks, nature of travel patterns, and the way in which all these elements are related in the definitions of highway function.
