Via fert = via ducit (ad)

LL PSI Cap XXI (p. 163): "Pueri pugnaverunt in via angusta quae Tusculo ad villam Iulii fert.

"The boys fought on the narrow road which leads from Tusculum to the villa of Julius."

This line is easy enough to understand, but Orberg notes in the caption that "via fert = via ducit (ad)."\

Is this a common use of fio, fiere? I can't find it used this way in Lewis and Short.

Thanks

Have a look in L&S at fero I. Lit., B, α, Absol., especially the quote from Caesar, B.C. I, 27:
aditus autem atque itinera duo, quae extra murum ad portum ferebant, maximis defixis trabibus atque eis praeacutis praesepit.
