Body:

68-516. Classification of highways in county unit road counties. (a) All the roads and highways in county unit road counties shall be classified, constructed and maintained according to the following classification system:
(1) "County major collector roads" which shall include all county roads and highways designated for inclusion in the major collector road system in accordance with K.S.A. 68-1701 to 68-1704, and amendments thereto;
(2) "county minor collector roads" which shall include all county roads and highways, not designated for inclusion in the major collector road system, which are other main traveled roads utilized primarily for the movement of traffic between different areas of the county; and
(3) "local service roads" which shall include all public roads and highways not designated for inclusion in the major collector road system and not designated as county minor collector roads or highways and not included in the state highway system or other state or federal systems.
(b) Such classification shall be made by the board of county commissioners, with the approval of the county engineer. The county engineer and the board of county commissioners may shift road or highway mileage from one road or highway classification to another as continuing study indicates that such changes are needed by reason of changing traffic needs or for other reasons substantiated by engineering analysis, except, that no road or highway mileage may be shifted to or from the major collector road system except as provided in article 17 of chapter 68 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.
