Expressway, parkway, its basically the same thing, it cuts up the park for vehicular traffic. Here people might call a major interstate the Thruway or Highway, while in california they might call it the Freeway. Is it 2 lanes in each direction? Does it have a parking lane? How do park users cross the road? Also what is the speed limit posted on the parkway?Originally posted by JivecitySTL
That's not an expressway, that's Forest Park Parkway. It's actually a great street, both for convenience and scenery. Most of Forest Park Parkway is closed until 2006, when the new Metro line opens (which will run parallel to it both above ground and underground).
-In Buffalo they're trying to reduce the effects of traffic on the park by reducing the speed limit and installing a traffic circle at a main intersection where the expressway enters the park system. The road is 2 lanes in both directions and the speed limit is 45mph. In order to cross the road, a pedestrian/bike bridge is set up at one point of the park to connect the park seperated by the expressway.
