Highway map showing the current and historic system of US routes
This map, printed on paper, shows the US highway system. When you have chosen from among the product options below, the price range displayed above will change to indicate the price for the specific configuration you have chosen. You can find more details about these options below.
This map shows the entire system of US routes.* One- and two-digit main routes (or "parent" routes) are depicted with purple lines; three-digit branch routes (or "child" routes) are shown in blue; decommissioned routes are red. Locations of current and historic endpoints are labeled. Hover over the images above to see examples.
*Note: US highways are not the same as Interstate highways. The focus of this map is the US route system, which was originally commissioned in 1926, and which predates the Interstate highway system by about 30 years. Main (one- and two-digit) Interstate routes are shown on this map, but only for reference, and they are not labeled.
The map was originally designed for the 3' x 4' configuration, and the labels are more legible at that size. If the map will be displayed on a wall, the 3' x 4' size is the best option in most cases. At the 2' x 3' size, the labels are still legible, but one needs to be closer to the map in order to read it. The smaller size makes the 2' x 3' map easier to transport.
The paper map is printed on 20 lb. bond (which is the same thickness as typical office copy paper). The laminated version of the map is printed on thicker paper (55 lb. bond) and protected with 3-mil lamination.
Prices shown here are valid for U.S. customers only. Your map will be rolled in a cardboard tube in order to avoid creases, and shipped via UPS. Paper maps should reach almost any address within three business days; laminated maps take approx. one week.
