Where Is the Widest Street in the World?

Monumental Axis is a 11.5 mile long boulevard in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. But it’s not the length of Monumental Axis that makes it a remarkable street, it’s the width.

The street, which consists of six lanes of traffic running among strips of park, is 819 feet wide, wider than any other street in the world. In fact, the width of Monumental Axis is greater than the length of many other streets!
