The Phoenix grid system is the basis for the street system of Peoria where most roads are oriented either north-south or east-west. The origin point is in downtown Phoenix at Central Avenue and Washington Street. Since Peoria is always west of zero, its north-south numbered Streets are Avenues. Major streets are spaced one mile apart. One-mile blocks are divided into about 800 house numbers although this can vary. In northern Peoria, streets are more curvilinear and begin to deviate from the north-south route due to geographic challenges.
