It has been planted with trees for much of its length of 515m and has an average width of 8m. It runs from the Avenue de la Porte d'Ivry to the Avenue de la Porte de Choisy. It now forms part of the ring-road around Paris, the boulevard périphérique or le périf.

One side marks the border of Ivry-sur-Seine from which it was annexed to Paris on April 19, 1929. On July 27, 1945 it was renamed after Hippolyte Marquès.
