What is a multiway boulevard?


A boulevard is a street design that uses medians to separate through traffic lanes from local access traffic lanes. The boulevard design balances competing needs for:
  • Roadway capacity
  • Local access
  • Street parking
  • Urban density
  • Pedestrian comfort
When both sides of the street are designed this way, it is a multiway boulevard.
