This office collects and analyzes report statistics related to the fiscal status, physical and geometric extent, performance, and designation of the State's roadway systems. This enables decision makers and system users to take advantage of quality transportation information to make performance-based decisions about transportation services and infrastructure.

  • Manage naming of State roadways, structures, and appurtenances;
  • Manage urban/rural designations along with Local Agencies;
  • Maintain the California Road System (CRS) maps;
  • Maintain condition and performance data in the Federally mandated Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)
  • Officially certify the annual Maintained Mileage Report of public road mileage for the State;
  • Implement Transportation System Performance Measures at the national, state, and regional levels; and

  • National Highway System (NHS)
    • Interstate System
    • Principal Arterials - Rural highways that provide corridor movements having characteristics similar to statewide or interstate travel. Also, Urban roadways that carry a major portion of trips entering and leaving urban areas or roadways the carry the major portion of through movements to bypass the central cities.
    • Intermodal Connectors - Highways that provide motor vehicle access between the NHS and major intermodal transportation facilities.
    • Strategic Highway Network (STRAHNET) - The network of highways importatnt to US strategic defense.
    • STRAHNET Connectors - connectors to major military installations.
