While roads provide an essential and valuable means for connecting residents of Kaysville City to employment, commercial, and recreational centers, the improper use of local residential streets can conflict with the desire for safe and peaceful neighborhoods.
Function & Capacity
The streets in Kaysville are laid out based on an intended function and capacity. Local residential streets are intended to carry lower traffic volumes and are primarily used for direct access to residential properties.
Collector streets are wider and typically have higher posted speed limits. They collect traffic from local streets and distribute it to arterial streets. Arterials are usually wider and have higher posted speed limits than collectors. The intent of an arterial is to carry high traffic volumes and have limited or no direct residential access.
