ROADWAY is based on U.S. highway lettering seen on New York street signs in February 2005.
Two weights of highway lettering would often be used in the same street sign, a standard condensed version used for the main name and a half-size regular for less important information like ‘road’ or ‘street’.
Roadway is a Small Caps font. The upper case is condensed capitals, the lower case consists of regular weight small caps, sized at 50% and superscript.
The small, superscript comma and period are situated at keystrokes < and > respectively. A hyphen to fit with the small caps is at the underscore position _
