Road Naming Standards


US HIGHWAYS, STATE HIGHWAYS, AND COUNTY STATE-AID HIGHWAYS
These types of roads use only the road type (US, State, or County) and the road number.  The proper formatting of these road names in Hubbard County is shown in the following examples:
US 71
STATE 34
COUNTY 9

OTHER NUMBERED ROADS
This applies primarily to township roads as well as some county roads.  Examples include 129TH AVE or 240TH ST.
STREET: Runs east or west
AVENUE: Runs north or south

ALPHA-NAMED ROADS
Road names in Hubbard County that do not include a number are referred to as alpha-named roads.  Hubbard County has a system in place for the naming of these roads.  These roads begin with the letter A at the southern county line, and then increase alphabetically by one letter every two rows of sections (or approximately two miles) north from there.  For a better illustration of this, please see this map.

ALPHA-NAMED ROAD DESIGNATIONS:
ROAD:  A through road that intersects a US Highway, State Highway, County Road, Street or Avenue                     
DRIVE:  A dead end road that intersects a US Highway, State Highway, County Road, Street or Avenue                   
LOOP:  A road that intersect the same road twice
CIRCLE:  A road that intersects itself
TRAIL:  A road that is only connected to alpha named roads and is not a Loop or Circle.  (Runs generally N or S)
LANE:  A road that is only connected to alpha named roads and is not a Loop or Circle.  (Runs generally E or W)                 
PASS:  A road that is only connected to alpha named roads and is not a Loop or Circle.
