Under roads, next to the advisor's face there is a bunch of small icons. There is one that is an arrow that swoops up, its called upgrade roads, you pay the difference.

Maybe you are wondering how to upgrade a Street into an Avenue without having to bulldoze everything in the area?  

 

The answer is you can't.  This is one I have been struggling with, because the optimal zoning between a Street and Avenue is different.  I am guessing that once you hit the stage where you need the Avenues, you have to raze a section at a time?

 

I saw a tutorial where he started with Avenues, and I tried for myself.  Of course I had to take out all 3 bonds, but it worked out, however I worked out.
