Noun. Portmanteau of "street" and "road": it describes a street, er, road, built for high speed, but with multiple access points. Excessive width is a common feature. A common feature in suburbia, especially along commercial strips. Unsafe at any speed, their extreme width and straightness paradoxically induces speeding. Somewhat more neutral than synonymous traffic sewer.
Did you see what the traffic engineers want to do to our street? They're going to turn it into a total stroad!

Stroad is a mix of street and road. It's too wide and fast to be safe for pedestrians while having too many intersections and driveways for an efficient movement of cars

Stroad is an unofficial slang portmanteau of street + road. It refers to roads that do a dangerous job of combining the features of a street and a road.

It is often a high-capacity suburban arterial road typically going through a commercial strip development. They are usually lined with direct access points to retail businesses with expansive front parking, making the area car-centric and having low walkability. They can often be multilane and go at speeds slightly faster than regular city speed limits.

Stroads often get memed as a satire of North American suburban life, full of lifeless bland consumerism, and a sort of artificial / detached sense of reality.
