Freebase

  1. Boulevard

    A boulevard, often abbreviated Blvd, is type of large road, usually running through a city. In modern American usage it often means a wide, multi-lane arterial thoroughfare, divided with a median down the centre, and perhaps with roadways along each side designed as slow travel and parking lanes and for bicycle and pedestrian usage, often with an above-average quality of landscaping and scenery. Larger and busier boulevards usually feature a median. In some countries, the term boulevard is rarely encountered; the term avenue is often used instead.
