I just recently moved to Douglas County. How are the county roads numbered and how does one locate a rural address?
The county roads and addresses are set up to make it simple for emergency responders to locate the entrances to homes from the road, said county Public Works Director Keith Browning.
"The roads are numbered from the south and west corner of the county," he said.
A road one mile east of the west county line would be East 100 Road. Similarly, a road one mile north of the south county line would be North 100 Road.
"If someone lived at 540 East 1700 Road, then that would be on East 1700 Road, which would be 17 miles east of the west county line and 5.4 miles north of the south county line," he said.
