Flower Avenue parallels University Boulevard from New Hampshire Avenue to Franklin Avenue, passing through Takoma Park, Long Branch, and Indian Spring. Along its route Flower Avenue intersects with heavily traveled roads such as Carroll Avenue, Piney Branch Road, and Wayne Avenue. Because Flower Ave. does not intersect with University Blvd or Colesville Road directly, most of its traffic is dumped on to East Franklin Avenue.
