A controlled-access highway is a type of highway which has been designed for high-speed vehicular traffic, with all traffic flow and ingress/egress regulated. Common English terms are freeway and motorway. Terms in other languages include Croatian: autocesta, French: autoroute, Russian: автомагистраль, German: Autobahn, Dutch: autosnelweg, Portuguese: autoestrada, Italian: autostrada, Polish: autostrada, Spanish: autopista, Greek: αυτοκινητόδρομος, Romanian: autostradă and Turkish: otoban or otoyol. Other similar terms include expressway, Interstate, and parkway. They may also be called limited-access highways, although this term can also refer to a class of highway with somewhat less isolation from other traffic. Conversely, some of the United States use "controlled access" to describe a non-limited-access road, entrances to which are controlled by the state. A controlled-access highway provides an unhindered flow of traffic, with no traffic signals, intersections or property access. They are free of any at-grade crossings with other roads, railways, or pedestrian paths, which are instead carried by overpasses and underpasses across the highway.
