Missouri highway maps are here

Posted on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 11:17 am

The new 2017-2018 Official Missouri State Highway Map is now available!
The map features brighter colors and stronger paper to make it both easier to read and more durable. Also, new interstate interchanges and exit numbers have been added since the last published edition in 2013.
The map shows Missouri’s 33,873-mile highway system and is distributed free of charge.
“We created the map using cutting-edge geographic information system software to provide Missourians with the most accurate information possible,” said MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna. “In addition to the traditional paper map, drivers can also visit our online Traveler Information Map to get current updates on road closures, work zones and road conditions.”
The location of truck parking along the interstates is now designated on the map and legend. Missouri state parks have been updated. The location of Missouri conservation management areas and national fish and wildlife areas are new to this map. The Kansas City inset map now shows the KC Streetcar line with stations.
Other information includes easy-to-locate emergency telephone numbers, reminders about some of Missouri’s traffic laws and contact information for the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Missouri Department of Transportation district offices. The map also marks historic sites, hospitals, airports, Amtrak stations, colleges and universities.
The cover of the map features a night shot of Kansas City’s magnificent Bartle Hall, a gem in the crown of the city skyline.
