History of the NC State Transportation Map

Historical Map

There have been quite a few changes to the state map since it was first printed in 1916. The detail of the map and number of roads shown have obviously increased over the past 90 years but it has changed in so many other ways as well. For instance, did you know that starting in 1941, the staff of NCDOT produced two versions of the travel map for three decades? The black and white version featured regulatory information for commercial vehicles where the color version highlighted points of interest for our many tourists. You may have also noticed that in addition to the map itself, there are various types of information printed on the sides and back of the map each year.
