In the Phoenix-County system, north-south numbered roads labeled "avenue", "drive", and "lane" are West of Central Avenue, while those labeled "street", "place" and "way" are east of Central Avenue. Starting with th Avenue  in the west near Tonopah the avenues count down with approximately 8 numbers per mile to 19th Avenue and count up again to from 16th Street to th Street  near Queen Creek in the east. They go, in order from west to east although not all necessarily exist :. One beneficial quality of this arrangement for unfamiliar travelers is that the major north-south arterial roads are rarely similarly named; the "avenue" arterials in the West Valley are all odd-numbered and the "street" arterials in the East Valley are even-numbered, with the exception of 7th Ave.
Additional confusion can be encountered in Mesa in its urban core, with east-west numbered avenues and drives counting down from 11th Avenue north towards Main Street ,  and numbered streets and places counting down from 11th Place south towards Main Street. Exceptions include:. Note that Apache Junction continues Mesa's convention of numbered street names by having the north-south sequence continue up from th St while simultaneously having east-west numbered avenues south of Apache Trail and east-west numbered streets north of Apache Trail.
