Very rarely will you find city streets that are numbered. Almost every street is a name, making it very hard to navigate. However, county roads tend to make their way into town or on the outskirts. "Farm Roads" as they're called are numbered even for east and west, and odd for north and south, with smaller numbers being further north/west and larger numbered roads being further south/east. For example: Farm Road 1 would be the westernmost road in the county, Farm Road 2 would be the northern most road in the county.
