Highway (number)

A "highway" is a road that drivers can drive quickly on with few stop signs or traffic lights.

In the U.S., a lot of highways are given numbers. People refer to them like this:

I'd take Highway 95 if I were you.

The two directions of a highway are usually marked as "North" and "South" or "East" and "West":

Merge onto Highway 38 North.
