Urban Fold

When is a Freeway Not a Freeway?

When there is a toll, of course. But the Federal Highway Administration uses the word indiscriminately, confusing the matter, writes Peter Samuel of Toll Roads News.

Samuel writes:

"The term 'freeway' isn't used by regular folks most places outside the west coast and Texas, except among professional engineers and anti-roads groups.

And it is a loaded word."

The FHWA's Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices confuses the point. Here's their definition:

"Freeway-a divided highway with full control of access."

Samuel explains why this definition is wrong-headed.
