The updated Future Thoroughfare Plan ensures that the future mobility network will contain a reasonably dense network of continuous routes. The new plan identifies arterials and collectors; those designations are based on the intended network function.
Local streets are not shown on the Future Thoroughfare Plan. They should be completely interconnected within each neighborhood and to adjoining neighborhoods. Local streets can be designed to slow or discourage, though not block, through traffic. Limitations on through movements is possible only because the network of collectors and arterials is sufficient to provide for most traffic flow.
