2. Roads are public or private. Public roads are laid out by public
authority, or dedicated by individuals to public use. The public
have the use of such roads, but the owner of the land over which
they are made and the owners of land bounded on the highway, have,
prima facie, a fee in such highway, ad medium filum vice, subject
to the easement in favor of the public. 1 Conn. 193; 11 Conn. 60;

3. There are public roads, such as turnpikes and railroads, which
are constructed by public authority, or by corporations. These are
kept in good order by the respective companies to which they belong,
and persons travelling on them, with animals and vehicles, are required
to pay toll. In general these companies have only a right of passage
over the land, which remains the property, subject to the easement,
of the owner at the time the road was made or of his heirs or assigns.
4. Private roads are, such as are used for private individuals only,
and are not wanted for the public generally. Sometimes roads of
this kind are wanted for the accommodation of land otherwise enclosed
and without access to public roads. The soil of such roads belongs

5. Public roads are kept in repair at the public expense, and private
roads by those who use them. Vide Domain;
ROAD, mar. law.
A road is defined by Lord Hale to be an open passage of the sea,
which, from the situation of the adjacent land, and its own depth
and wideness, affords a secure place for the common riding and anchoring
of vessels. Hale de Port. Mar. p. 2, c. 2. This word, however, does
not appear to have a very definite meaning. 2 Chit. Com. Law, 4,
To see a road in your dream, indicates your sense of direction and
pursuit of your goals. To see a winding and bumpy road in your dream,
signifies that will find many obstacles and setbacks toward your
goals. You may be met with unexpected difficulties. To see a smooth
road bordered by green trees and flowers, denotes a steady progress
and steady climb up the social ladder. If the road is straight and
narrow, then it means that your path to success is going according
as planned. To see an unknown road in your dream, signifies that
you new project will cause more grief than it is worth and a waste
of time. *Please see also Street.

A road in Japan.A road is a strip of land, smoothed or otherwise
prepared to allow easier travel, connecting two or more destinations.
In the context
of railways, a road is a single track, which may be part of a multi-track
system or may be an isolated line. In the context of sea transport,
a road is an anchorage.
Usage and etymologyIn original usage, a "road" was simply
fit for riding ("road" is cognate with "ride",
e.g.: ships ride at anchor in roads). The word "street"
was kept for roads that had been prepared to ease travel in some
way (thus, many "Roman Roads" have the word "street"
in their names whose origin is the Latin roadlink strata, given
before the usage changed).
modern usage does not usually make this distinction, and it is only
important since place names often hold the earlier usage in them;
these days roads are also prepared in some way. This includes, at
the least, the removal of trees and smoothing of the ground. In
some dialects, lower grade roads are called trails and wheel tracks,
and it is uncertain where "road" begins and trail ends.
Roads are a prerequisite for road transport of goods on wheeled
Many historical examples exist of road and road-building. Some of
the most famous are the Roman roads and the Incan courier roads.
In ancient times, transport by river was far easier and faster than
travel by road, especially considering the cost of road construction
and the difference in carrying capacity between carts and river
barges - provided only that the rivers were navigable in the right
places; availability of water transport also influenced settlement
patterns. A hybrid of road transport and ship transport is the historic
During the industrial
revolution, a development of the road was made: the railway. Today,
roads are almost exclusively built to enable travel by car and other
wheeled vehicles, and in most countries road transport is the most
utilized way to move goods.
in cities are often, but not always, called streets or alleys; this
reflects the historical fact that when they were first named there
were more likely to be unmade roads in open country and paved roads
in urban areas. This leads to roads being sometimes named from their
destination or direction, while streets may be named from their
FundingRoad building and maintenance is one of the few areas of
economic activity (compare military spending) that remain dominated
by the public sector (though often through private contractors).
Roads (except those on private property not accessible to the general
public) are typically paid for by taxes (often raised through levies
on fuel), though some public roads are funded by tolls.
Driving on the right or the leftTraffic drives, depending on the
country, either on the right or on the left side of the road, see
Rules of the road.
where traffic drives on the right, traffic signs are mostly on the
right side of the road, roundabouts (traffic circles) go counter-clockwise,
and pedestrians crossing a two-way road should watch out for traffic
from the left first. In countries where traffic drives on the left,
the reverse is true.
and road design in both cases are each other's mirror image.
DesignRoad design consists of two important technical aspects:
structural road design Besides these two technical sides of the
design, environmental issues, planning issues and juridical issues
Roads are built by removing vegetation. The soil is tested to see
if it will support weight and if not, a layer of soil is removed
and replaced. The soil is compacted to form what is known as a "base
course". On top of the base course is placed a wearing course
which consists of asphalt or concrete. The main purpose of the wearing
course is to prevent moisture from entering the road.
Roads are constructed
using a variety of road building equipment.
and indeed many ancient ones, such as those built by the Romans,
feature a convex lateral surface known as camber. This is designed
to allow water to drain away from the road to its edges. Water is
then carried away by gutters to drains placed at intervals. Some
roads don't have gutters and water simply drains away to a naturally
porous verge, or into ditches. Modern roads that carry high speed
traffic also employ camber in curves to aid traffic stability by
allowing them to "bank into" the bend to some extent.
On the side
of the road there may be retroreflectors on pegs, rocks or crash
barriers, white toward the direction of the traffic on that side
of the road, and red toward the other direction. In the road surface
there may be cat's eyes: retroreflectors that protrude slightly,
but which can be driven over without damage.
Road signs are
often also made retroreflective. For greater visibility of road
signs at daytime, sometimes fluorescence is applied to get very

LINK was a project started in the late 1960s by Wharton Econometric

world's first global macroeconomic model, linking models of many
of the world's countries so that the effect of changes in the economy
of one country are reflected in other countries.
A link is a connection, e.g.:
One element in a chain (literally or figuratively).
More generally, a physical connection such as a road, railroad,
cable, or pipeline.
A connection by radio waves, or a radio path between two points,
called a radio link.
In hypertext, a hyperlink, i.e. a provision for moving from one
webpage to another; similarly for an other set of pages (not necessarily
on the Internet), such as articles in an electronic encyclopedia.
The communications facilities between adjacent nodes of a network.
Note 1: In all cases, the type of link, such as data link, downlink,

link, radio link and satellite link, should be identified.
Note 2: A link may be simplex, half-duplex, or duplex.

In knot theory a link is several knots (possibly including the unknot)
which may be linked together. These are the components of the link.
If they are not linked, they are said to be unlinked, but they are
still referred to as a link. Likewise a knot may be called a link,
even though it has only one component.
A customary unit of the United States of America, i.e. one hundredth
