Our nation’s roadway system contains a functional hierarchy which provides each road with a designation based on its primary purpose. At the top of the hierarchy are freeways and expressways designed to maximize “Point A to Point B” mobility that feature limited access, i.e. access at only high speed interchanges, no intersections or driveways. There are also arterials that are roads that have traffic signals at intersections and access points at larger frequency spacing.
