New 2013 State Maps Now Available For Travelers

Friday, February 15, 2013

The official 2013 Tennessee Transportation Map is now available for travelers. This year’s map contains new information to assist motorists, including the recently completed State Route 840 in southern Middle Tennessee. This is the first state map in 26 years to show the completed route that bypasses Nashville and provides access to Interstate 40 east and west of Nashville, Interstate 24, and Interstate 65. 

“The state map is a valuable tool for motorists, and can assist them in planning their route through Tennessee,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “The map is free and is also available at welcome centers and rest areas across the state.” 

The 2013 state map can also be downloaded from the TDOT web site at www.tn.gov/tdot/maps.htm.

Pre-printed maps may be ordered from TDOT online at www.tn.gov/tdot/MapOrder/maporder.htm or by mailing a request to: Tennessee Department of Transportation, 505 Deaderick Street, James K. Polk Building, Suite 900, Nashville, Tn. 37243-0345.

Individuals may request up to five free maps. Organizations and schools may order up to one hundred maps for their use. 

The Official 2013 Tennessee Transportation Map is a joint effort between TDOT and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.
