Roadways

Illuvia's road numbers are laid out on this Padlet. It includes all current road numbers of Illuvia and it's counties

-- Highways --

Illuvia has three classifications of roadway: Freeway, Primary, and Secondary. The Freeway classification includes all roadways that are almost entirely controlled access, such as an FS Motorway or a controlled access IL highway. Primary roads are those which are an important connector between towns and cities. This includes almost all four lane highways such as IL 8. Secondary includes all other roadways that are state owned, such as IL 88.

Highways in the 900s range are highways that are made from other split or discontinued highways, but the roadway either has too much significance or they don't want to transfer it to the county for some reason.

All of Illuvia's counties have at least one roads zone. These zones are portions of the county that have their roads managed by a separate director of transport. The county routes or highways start off with a one or two letter code, then a number. Counties can have one, such as Old County - Terrace (T), or multiple such as Bradlen County - Bradlen (BR) / Crinxton (CX) / Rivador (R). These roads departments are paid for out of separate tax groups.

Suburban highway: 50 MPH

Most rural highways are 55 or 60, but straight rural ones are often 65.

Separated 4 lane highways are usually lower limits like 60 or 65, but if you get really rural you can find a few highways that are 70 and 75, though often it lowers when the roadway is not straight or passes through a populated place.

Most of the controlled access routes are 65 or 70 when through an area with exits only a few miles apart. However, rural areas are often 75. 80 MPH highways are only found in rural western Illuvia.

Enforcement of speed limits is only really in populated places or main highways. Speed cameras are only allowed on highways if there is a significant crash rate and there is not a way to keep an officer present in the area.
