County Routes


(Douglas Kerr, 02/19/2012)

Columbia County posts the standard pentagonal reassurance markers along its routes. Most roads are named "County Road xx". Even numbered routes generally run east-west and odd numbered routes, north-south. Several county routes overlap with state routes, though the county designation is not recognized in such instances. And a handful of routes are segmented.
