History

Over the years, many different types of roads have been labeled parkways. The first parkways in America were developed in the 19th Century by Frederick Law Olmsted as segregated roads for pedestrians, bicyclists, equestrians, and carriages, with the most famous of this group being Eastern Parkway and Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, NY. Roads such as The Parkway in Boston, MA and Bidwell and Lincoln Parkways in Buffalo, New York are broad, divided roads with large landscaped central medians. These older parkways often act as the approach to a large city park such as the Boston Common in Boston or Delaware Park in Buffalo. They are lined with houses. Some separated express lanes from local lanes, though this was not always the case.

During the early 20th century, the meaning of the word was expanded to include limited-access highways designed for recreational driving of automobiles. New parkways provided scenic places to race motor cars outside the city without stopping for pedestrian traffic and slower vehicles. These parkways led to more development outside the city, which eventually limited their usefulness for recreation. A limited-access highway is a highway where access is limited. ...


Some of these parkways have become major local or interstate traffic routes, however they retained the name parkway. These parkways have been designed particularly for through traffic, and many can be classified generally as freeways or toll highways.

Historically, the term "parkway" has often implied that the road was designed specifically with a naturalistic or manicured landscaping of the median and adjacent land areas meant to suggest a pastoral driving experience, isolated from the manifestations of commerce and advertising, even when the road passes through populated areas; for this reason commercial traffic is excluded. Central Park, like all parks, is an example of landscape architecture. ...

Many parkways have signature road signs with special emblems that suggest a thematic driving experience and increase the sense of isolation from civilization in the vicinity of the road.

Beginnings: New York City

The terminology "parkway" to define a type of road was coined by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted, designers of New York City's Central Park, in their proposal to link city and suburban parks with pleasure roads. Eastern Parkway and Ocean Parkway (Brooklyn) were actually built at this time. Soon after, similar "parkways" were built in and around Boston, as coordinated parts of an extensive park and road system; see for example the Mystic Valley Parkway (1895). The New York City area continued to set trends with a new 20th century type featuring off-grade crossings and other features that foreshadowed later freeway designs. Construction on the Bronx River Parkway began in 1907, and on the Long Island Parkway (also known as the Vanderbilt Parkway) in 1908. In the 1920s, the parkway system around New York City grew extensively under the direction of Robert Moses, President of the Long Island State Park Commission, who saw parkways as an active means to transfer population from crowded urban areas onto undeveloped areas.

Across the United States

In the 1930s, the concept of the parkway was extended to the federal government, which constructed several national parkways designed for recreational driving and to commemorate historic routes. Such two-lane parkways typically have a relatively low speed limit and are maintained by the National Park Service. Examples include the CCC-built Blue Ridge Parkway / Skyline Drive in North Carolina and Virginia, the Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, and the Colonial Parkway in eastern Virginia's Historic Triangle area.

In Kentucky, "parkway" is used to designate a controlled-access highway built as a toll road. Under Kentucky law, once the bonds that finance their construction of a toll road are paid off, the road must be turned into a freeway.

Many opponents of increased road construction in the United States claim that the use of the term "parkway" in any sense other than as a scenic route through parkland, is deceptive. It is claimed by such advocates that many existing and proposed parkways (such as the proposed West Eugene Parkway in Oregon) are functionally indistinguishable from freeways and/or expressways, and the "parkway" label is used to make construction of such routes seem more palatable to the public (who might otherwise stage a freeway revolt, especially if their neighborhood is affected). Others claim that this is splitting hairs; and that the use of the term "parkway" in conjunction with urban and suburban highways is a well-established practice. Furthermore, most routes designated with the "parkway" label do have scenic enhancements (making the route more attractive for both motorists and neighbors), and many such routes do exclude trucks.

Parkway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (647 words)
Many parkways have signature road signs with special emblems that suggest a thematic driving experience and increase the sense of isolation from civilization in the vicinity of the road.
The terminology "parkway" to define a type of road was coined by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted, designers of New York City's Central Park, in their proposal to link the city's parks with pleasure roads.
In the 1930s, the concept of the parkway was extended to the federal government, which constructed several national parkways designed for recreational driving and to commemorate historic routes.
