New 2018 State Maps Now Available

Friday, January 19, 2018

The official 2018 Tennessee Transportation Map is now available for travelers.

There have been some improvements and additions to the 2018 state map in order to increase its accuracy and usability. These include improvements in divided and undivided roadways, as well as segments which have been added or modified for clarity, such as the SR 218 extended route from SR 69 to SR 54 in Henry County. To enhance way finding, points of interest were updated and added, along with alignment corrections to the roads themselves to accurately represent the state routes statewide.

“The state map continues to be a valuable tool for motorists to assist them as they plan their travels 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 2018 state map can also be downloaded from the TDOT website at https://www.tn.gov/tdot/driver-how-do-i/look-at-or-order-state-maps/maps/state-maps.html

Pre-printed maps may be ordered from TDOT online at https://www.tn.gov/tdot/driver-how-do-i/look-at-or-order-state-maps/maps/map-ordering.html or by mailing a request to:
