does "the four lanes of" mean "the Harry Hines boulevard has four lanes?" Thereafter things went more smoothly, though at times they had to slow to a crawl. The number of red lights was extraordinary. They didn't stop for them, but to avoid collisions they had to treat them as what the Secret Service calls "pink lights," pausing and glancing each way before speeding up. To those who were listening intently for rifle shots these pauses were almost unbearable, and the trip seemed longer than it was. It was within a minute of the time span of the drive from the triple underpass to Parkland: out the four lanes of Harry Hines, right at a sign reading "DALLAS LOVE FIELD," right on Mockingbird, and through the break in the airport's chain fence. Three miles, seven minutes; they were there.

Yes, although I'm not sure if it means two lanes in each direction, or four lanes in the direction they were going.
