What’s the difference between an Ave, Rd, St, Ln,

One of our readers asked us the other day, What’s the difference between an Ave, Rd, St, Ln, Dr, Way, Pl, Blvd etc. and how is it decided which road is what?

There are many acceptable definitions for these, this is just one set, it is highly likely you have seen something different. Different places will have different rules on what’s what or no rules at all. There are literally dozens of right answers to this. Almost all of these should really be affixed with “is usually” but because of how long this has gotten, I can’t include every exception and variation.

Everything I found here is either rephrased from an urban planning textbook, Wikipedia, or Google’s define function, I never claimed to be an expert on anything, what I gave here is essentially the most common occurring definition I could find, but many are used interchangeably, how a word is used in vernacular does not change an accepted definition.

These aren’t hard and fast rules. Most cities and such redefine them their own way about what road can be called what.

Why you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Parkway originally referred to the decorations along that particular road, not the state of the cars on it, its similarities to a park being obvious. Driveways were originally much longer than they are now, so you actually would drive on them.
