The street and highway network is probably the most important segment of the transportation system within a community and beyond. Every land use activity relies on the street/highway system and affects the transportation system by generating traffic. Streets within the City are classified according to their function and traffic volume and are designated as either principal arterial, minor arterial, collector street, or local street. Restrictions in driveway access and parking are often required to maintain a street’s design capacity, improve safety and facilitate smooth traffic flow. [Street Classification Map]
