Principal arterials emphasize mobility with limited access. These include freeways, expressways and those arterials that are specifically designed to provide a high level of mobility with limited access to adjoining properties.
Minor arterials interconnect with and augment the principle arterial system while providing a somewhat lower level of travel mobility due to less stringent access limitations.
Collectors provide a balanced function of land access and mobility within residential neighborhoods and commercial and industrial areas.
Local Roads & Streets
