§17-4-39. Controlled-access facilities -- Defined.
For the purpose of this chapter, a controlled-access
facility is defined as a highway or portion of a highway
especially designed for through traffic, and over, from, or to
which owners or occupants of abutting land or other persons have
no right or only a controlled right or easement of access, light,
air, or view by reason of the fact that their property abuts upon
such controlled-access facility or for any other reason. Such
highways may be freeways open to use by all customary forms of
highway traffic; or they may be parkways from which trucks,
buses, and other commercial vehicles shall be excluded.
