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:

Tennessee Department of Transportation
505 Deaderick Street
James K. Polk Building, Suite 900
Nashville, Tennessee 37243-1402

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

The Official 2018 Tennessee Transportation Map is a joint effort between TDOT and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.

Architectural Tour Of Hancock Park Area Of Los Angeles

If you ask most residents of central Los Angeles, they won’t be able to tell you exactly where Hancock Park is: “Near Koreatown, I think” or “probably south of Wilshire.” The core area is mostly residential and there aren’t many reasons for outsiders to go deep into the neighborhoods, which is a relief to those who live there, as L.A. keeps setting new visitor records (48.3 million ...

Roy Exum: Want To Buy An AK-47?

On Sunday night I got an email from a reader who I enjoy that read, “How about, ‘Don’t sell assault weapons to 18-year-olds.’ The blood is on your hands (and all the other gun and violence idolaters)!” While I beg to disagree with him, this is a nation where – right now, this minute -- there are an estimated ONE TRILLION rounds of ammunition and over 300 million firearms. I can ... (click for more)
