Generally, highways fall into one of four broad categories-- principal arterial, minor arterials, collector roads, and local roads. Arterials provide longer through travel between major trip generators (larger cities, recreational areas, etc.); and collector roads collect traffic from the local roads and also connect smaller cities and towns with each other and to the arterials: local roads provide access to private property or low volume public facilities.
