Freeways and arterials are types of highways. A freeway is designed to carry heavy traffic volumes for a long distance. It is designed to provide for mobility with high speed and a very limited (or no) access. Only interchanges are used for road crossings along the freeway. An arterial is designed to carry smaller volumes for shorter distances. It is designed to provide for both mobility and access. Both intersections and interchanges are used for road crossings.
