Rank 1 streets are the main roads in and out of the city. Examples include Main Street, Harrodsburg Road and Newtown Pike. Most Rank 1 roads are also snow emergency routes. 

Rank 2 streets, such as Rosemont Garden and Bryan Avenue, connect Rank 1 roads and provide access to large commercial areas with offices and stores. 

Rank 3 streets are main collector routes that connect residential areas to Rank 1 and 2 roads. Examples include Zandale Drive, Appian Way and Buck Lane. 

Rank 4 streets are local collector streets within subdivisions, which allow residents access to main roads.
