Arterial streets (no typical cross section). The specifications for this type of street shall be in accordance with the New Jersey State Highway Department design standards and shall depend on soil conditions, traffic volume, load limit, drainage considerations, etc. In no case shall these specifications be less than those required for collector streets.
