viae temporis
Explanation:
The most comprehensive rendering. 'Viae' = 'paths' ('roads, ways, streets') suggests any 'path', real or metaphorical, and when real, usually it is better rendered by 'highway' or 'broadway'.

You could also use either 'semitae' or 'tramites' instead of 'viae'. These imply 'footpaths', 'trails', anyway 'byway', not paved roads, sreeets, or other public ways peculiar to urban areas.
