What is the difference between county and state roads?
United StatesYou have asked a somewhat complicated question and the answer is not exactly the same in every state. Some states have counties that maintain a strong county government. The county government is carried out by one or more county commissioners. County roads are built, improved and maintained by the county highway department. County governments have been abolished in some areas and in that case control of the county roads would pass to the state administratively.
A second type of highway system in the U. S. is the state highway system of numbered roads. These roads are built, improved and maintained by the state highway department that is usually part of the state department of transportation.

Not a lot, really. Roads tend to be in the countryside, streets in towns, but the distinction is blurred.
They are both essentially the same thing. A paved or gravelled surface used to allow the passage of vehicles and people. But streets are usually found only within a town or ci…ty, whereas a road tends to be outside of a town or city. Roads generally connect towns and cities running through the countryside. But in my town of Halifax, there are roads inside the city, such as Bayers Road. So it all depends on the people who are responsible for doing the naming, whether or not they call it a street or road.
The difference between a county and a state is a politicaldivision of a state, and provides certain local governmentalservices. A state is a territory considered as an organiz…edpolitical community under one government.
Roads are used in naberhoods, and highways are used for commute. Highways are used to really just get you from point A to point B in a fast time. Roads are really just used to… get to a house or building.\n. \n http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Road | http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highway
County is a jail not a prison, its generally a temp holding for pending court, shorter sentence, misdemeanors etc. Prison is longer sentence for felonies .
A street is generally found in cities. Roads are generally found running through rural areas. But there are some roads found within cities, so it all depends on what the peopl…e want to call them when they are built.
A highway is what you drive on. The route is how you get there.
A path is usually small and meant for walking. Roads are paved and are part of the transportation system.
In England we have roads, streets, terraces all as a description of a thoroughfare however the term terrace has an additional meaning of a row of houses built without any divi…ding spaces, this is a terrace of houses. hope this helps. Doug Geater Childs

The best players in a county get into the "All County" orchestra. But there are many counties in a state, hence a much bigger talent pool. So in theory, the All State orchestr…a will be overall better players. To put it another way: To get into All County, you have to be good. To get in to all state, you have to be really good.
In general there is no difference between a street and a road. Having the two terms permits the same town to have and Elm Street and an Elm Road without confusion. In some p…laces a street may be something expected to have less traffic than a road, but in others it can be just the opposite.
you know a road ,it has sometimes has some white lines that split the lanes equily
a lane is normally very small and a road is normally very long and mre likely to have many shops/building
A road is a pathway for travelling. Rode is the past tense of ride. John rode his horse on the road.
In practice there is very little difference between a road and a drive. The terms do have different histories, however. Roads were built long ago by the Roman Empire to make i…t easier to move their armies around as needed, and generally people walked on those roads. Driving also existed, even then, but only of horse-drawn vehicles. Today, driving is more common than walking, even on roads, but the term drive emphasizes the importance of being able to drive a vehicle. Pedestrians now use sidewalks rather than roads. Other terms such as street, boulevard, or highway, all have similar meanings as well, but different histories.
