I hope that the roadway will get treated to one single name, like 4 Street or something because it is my pet peeve that continious roadways in this city have all sorts of names!
You'd have gone bonkers in London a few hundred years ago, where every street had it's own name, ie: Walk down Masons Lane and it becomes Friars Mews, then Cornhall St, then Abbey Close, then Puddle Dock -- all without turning a corner.
I've heard they've really sorted out a lot of the street names over the years so a contiguous street keeps it's name for the whole length, but there are still some single-block streets that come together at odd angles so four, five or even six different street names converge in one intersection.
