Howard County Master Road Book Index

The Howard County Master Road Book Index should include all roads officially incorporated into the County Road System of publicly operated and maintained facilities, including private, undedicated, and State Highway Administration ("SHA") roads. The roads are listed alphabetically. For example, Adcock Lane has four (4) entries representing the four (4) pieces that were deeded separately that make up the road. The number in the far right column is the total length in feet. Under "Type", the roads are listed as follows:

  • Co = County Road
  • Pres = Prescriptive ROW (Right of Way)
  • SHA = State Road
  • Prv = Private Road
  • PAP = Private Access Place
  • OP = Other Public (represents roads or pieces of roads, to be dedicated or in the dedication process and therefore not officially deeded to the County)

NOTE: Road lengths are approximate.
