This type is composed of two lanes. It is works best with medium density avenues because its cheap and easily available for everyone.

  • Low Density Street - it has two lanes. Ideal if you have enough money and its good as you begin to upgrade. This is better than dirt roads once you have increase the population, traffic will also be one problem that dirt roads will have to struggle.

  • Medium Density Street - once you feel that you needed more money for your city, this kind of road will be ideal for it coming from the low density street. This will give you a chance to do freely with bigger buildings and more population.

  • High Density Road - this type have four lanes allowing bigger density buildings. It is a lot harder to manage but it comes with more Sims and more jobs for them. So, basically it entails more money for the city.
