Street Law and Legal Definition

A street refers to a road or way maintained by local authority and used by the public.

The following is an example of a case law on Street:

Street means more than the surface, it means the whole surface and so much of the depth as is or can be used, not unfairly, for the ordinary purposes of a street. It comprises a depth which enables the urban authority to do that which is done in every street, namely, to raise the street and to lay down sewers. Street includes the surface and so much of the depth as may be not unfairly used as streets are used. It does not include such a depth as would carry with it the right to mines. [Leadville v. Bohn Mining Co., 37 Colo. 248, 253 (Colo. 1906)].
