Public Works - Street Index (Overview)
You can access the complete index of City/County streets from this page. There are two ways to do this:
- First, you can simply view the index as a series of consecutive, alphabetically ordered Web pages. This is the simplest and, for most purposes, quickest approach. It also allows you to narrow your search just to street names containing characters of your choice (such as "monroe" for all references to Monroe Street). If this is your first time viewing the index, don't forget to check below for the definitions of some terms and other comments.
- If you'd prefer, you can view or download a copy of the complete street index. In order to do so, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. Once you have that program installed on your computer, simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this page will open the index from within the Reader. (Alternatively, you can right-click the link and save the file to your computer for later viewing off-line.)
Using the complete street index (Adobe Acrobat version):
When you open the street index in its PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format, you'll see two "panes" within the Acrobat window. To the left is a table of contents, headed "Bookmarks"; to the right is the index itself. When you click on a letter of the alphabet in the table of contents, the index automatically moves ahead or back to the page in the index where street names beginning with that letter appear.
Interpreting the street index:
The street index you see here is a work in progress. Data has been drawn from a number of sources, and therefore can be inconsistent from one record to the next. In particular:
- Segment ownership (described below) is simply missing in many cases.
- Numbered streets are represented as numbers. This differs from the street names appearing in the traffic counts pages: 6th Avenue here in the street index, for instance, is called Sixth there.
Interpreting the column headings is fairly straightforward. There are four columns:
- Street Name (alphabetic): This street index includes only what might be termed street segments. Many streets and roads, especially in outlying portions of Leon County, have no name at all, or are designated as unpaved and assigned a number (such as "UR 1116"). We have not included these "anonymous" streets and roadways in this listing.
- From/To Streets or Addresses: Each street may be only a single segment. This is true especially of short streets; for example, Valencia Drive runs for one block between Escambia and West Tennessee. In such cases, the value in this column reads "(Entire Length)." Longer streets are broken up into multiple segments, each of which may be owned and maintained by a different governmental body (City, County, etc.). The start and end of a segment may be represented by the name of an intersecting street, by the starting/ending street address on that segment (e.g., "#250"), or a combination of the two.
- Segment Length: Length of the segment in feet (rounded to two decimal places).
- Segment Owner: Government body or other organization responsible for the segment's upkeep. This is very important information; if you know of a street badly in need of repaving, it may or may not be the City's responsibility (although we will, of course, share with the street's true "owner" any repaving requests that we receive). Note that not all streets are "owned"; these are designated as Private. (Neither the City nor the County can take responsibility for maintaining privately-owned streets.) You will also find references in this column to "unconstructed" streets, which are not paved at all. In many cases, the Segment Owner column is blank; this simply means "not yet established in the database," not that it actually has no owner. In these cases, you may be able to determine the segment's ownership from the ownership of nearby streets or street segments.
