New state transportation maps available

RALEIGH – A newly updated road map of North Carolina is now available.

The 2017-18 map is free to residents and visitors alike.

The State Transportation Map is funded and produced by the N.C. Department of Transportation and distributed by Visit NC, a unit of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.

Maps are available at welcome centers, rest areas and DOT offices across the state. They can be ordered online at www.VisitNC.com/StateMap or by phone at 800-VisitNC. A full-size PDF version can be downloaded at www.ncdot.gov/travel/mappubs/statetransportationmap.

North Carolina has one of the largest highway systems in the nation, and the new map details the more than 106,000 miles of public roadway that span the state. That network includes 79,608 miles of state-maintained roads.

The state map is DOT’s most popular publication. More than 1.75 million copies of this version have been printed. It includes photos that features a variety of North Carolina scenery, from the Smoky Mountains to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
