Street Types

Boston’s streets have developed their character over centuries of growth and evolution. Short, meandering streets in historic areas such as the North End and Highland Park cede to more generously scaled, 20th century treelined boulevards. Residential streets with narrow setbacks intersect linear connector roads, curvilinear parkways, and lively small-business districts. As the city continues to evolve, understanding how different streets interact with adjacent land uses and contexts is central to creating Complete Streets. This chapter defines new character and context-based Street Types to supplement the traditional functional classification system.
