(a)  All secondary roads which are a part of the Highway System will carry a number beginning at 1000.

(b)  Secondary road numbers 1000 to 1099 are developed for the principal routes within a county.

(c)  Wherever possible these numbers are continuous for two or more counties.

(d)  Secondary road numbers for the majority of the secondary roads are numbered numerically, increasing in the county.  Thus, different counties will have different routes with the same number.

(e)  Numbering of secondary roads in each county will start in the southwesterly quadrant, numbering in a clockwise direction with numbers starting at 1100 and numerically increasing.  A block of numbers is allotted for each section of the county with sufficient unused numbers to permit roads to be added in the future.

(f)  All requests for changing existing secondary road numbers shall be acted upon by the Department of Transportation.  Requests for the addition, modification or deletion of secondary road numbers shall be submitted to the Department.
