[ Columbia County Route Marker ]

Columbia County routes are posted routes. Even numbers are east-west, increasing from south to north. Odd numbers are north-south, increasing from east to west. CR 46, CR 88 and CR 89 are anomalous.

Columbia County highways are almost all relatively long-distance routes. Many of them continue across state highways, often spanning much of the length or breadth of the County. Also, several consist of two or more discrete segments, either discontiguous or intersecting. Most of the roads in the county belong to the Towns, the county designations being conservatively distributed. Usually, the roads are referred to by number, their older names having fallen out of favor. In no case does any county route enter either a Village or the City of Hudson.
