Major Thoroughfare Plan

Functional Classification of Streets. The classification of city streets shall be generally defined as follows:
  • Primary Arterial Streets. Primary arterial streets provide for high-moderate-volume, moderate-speed traffic movement between and through major activity centers. Access to abutting property is subordinate to traffic flow and is subject to necessary control of entrances and exits.
  • Secondary Arterial Streets. Secondary arterial streets augment and feed the primary arterial system and are intended for moderate-volume, moderate-speed traffic movement. Access to abutting property is partially controlled.
  • Primary Collector/Commercial Streets. Primary collector streets collect and distribute traffic between arterial streets and residential collector or residential streets and are intended for short length trips while also providing access to abutting properties. Commercial streets serve areas predominately zoned for commercial or industrial uses. City of Ozark may require 3-lanes as required to serve intended or future developments.
  • Residential Collector. Residential collector streets are designed to collect and distribute traffic from between residential streets and collector or arterial streets. Residential collector streets are intended for low-speed low-volume traffic movement and for short length trips.
  • Residential Streets. Residential streets are designed to provide direct access to abutting property. Residential streets are intended for low-speed low-volume traffic movement and for short length trips.
  • Downtown Local, Provides direct access to abutting property. Downtown local streets are intended for low-speed, low-volume traffic movement and for short length trips. Design of downtown local streets varies depending on the character and intensity of traffic generated by adjacent land development as well as the existing right of way and significant buildings and the City of Ozark‚Äôs Design Standards.
