Below is a map I made highlighting east-west streets in green, and north-south streets in orange.
|North-South streets in orange, East-West in green. Drawn by the author in Google Earth.|
|These streets in Northwood all run east-west numbering-wise, but not geographically.|
Because most of the streets in Four Corners are not straight lines, there are several streets that do not have any clear direction. Lawnsberry Terrace in Franklin Knolls is labelled north-south, yet it is a rough "U" shape that seems to go mote east-west than not.
|Lawnsberry Terrace is a north-south street, though it doesn't have a dominant geographic direction.|
There are several other examples of oddities such as this. It must have been a judgement call when numbers were assigned to homes on such streets after their construction. With so many streets lacking a clear geographic direction, it appears planners did the best they could in assigning accurate numbers to these roads.
What do you notice from the map? Does your street's direction make sense?
