The intersection of streets is much more common in daily parlance than the
intersection of sets, so I think it should have a short word. A street can be
regarded as the set of points along it, so the intersection of two streets is
the set of points they have in common, which is what's normally meant,
barring the complication of trying to figure out whether a point in the
fillet is in the street. (I doubt that Trade and Tryon are filleted;
filleting rights-of-way wasn't done on old maps.)

OT: I was in Raleigh with my mother in a clothing store. I asked some
saleslady, "Pardon me for being from Charlotte, but where's the Tryon room?"
