    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?
    -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.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    Forest Park Parkway is 2 lanes in each direction, speed limit of 45 mph, harldy what you'd consider a major expressway. There are pedestrian overpasses all along its route through the park. I love the Parkway, it's a great shortcut through the city's central corridor. When the new Metro line opens, it will be even better.
