The state transportation map is the department's most popular publication. The map features the state's extensive highway system, as well as important safety information. Along with the Division of Travel, Tourism and Film Development, NCDOT prints nearly two million copies each year.
This map identifies all the North Carolina interstate, US and NC routes. It is based off our NC State Travel Map.
This map shows county names and their respective boundaries.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation divides the duties of building and maintaining the infrastructure into 14 divisions across the state.
Posted bridges are bridges whose structural load carrying capacity is limited to the weight of vehicles posted on the bridge, as determined by a load rating analysis.
Posted bridge maps are broken out into NC DOT’s 14 Divisions and show posted bridges on Primary Routes (Interstates, US & NC highways). These maps are made available as a service to industry, the enforcement community, and affected local, state and federal agencies.
Bridge posting information is subject to continual updates resulting from bridge inspections, structural analyses, bridge maintenance (repair and replacement), and incidents. NC Bridge Postings are typically updated monthly, however, subsequent updates, improvements, closures and/or incidents may not be reflected.
For bridge and bridge load information, contact the Structures Management Unit at 919-707-6400.

The Transportation Mobility and Safety Unit and the NCDOT Executive Committee for Highway Safety have collaborated with the Transportation Asset Analytics - Mapping Section to develop and produce Crash Profile Summary Maps. These maps show the distribution of Fatal, Fatal + A-injury, and Total Crashes for the all vehicles as well as for motorcycles and large trucks. They provide a visual summary of crash data for the public, NCDOT’s safety partners, and the department’s leadership team while supporting data-driven efforts to identify crash areas of concern.
The tabular crash data upon which these maps are based are collected and maintained by Transportation Mobility and Safety. Crash rates are included in the Department’s Performance Dashboard as an indicator of how well we are meeting our mission and goals.
Crash Maps by County (Based on crash data from January 2010 to December 2015)
*Note: Crash Rates are based on incidents per 1000 people. “A” Type injuries are defined as a disabling injury serious enough to prevent the injured person(s) from performing their normal activities for at least one day beyond the day of the crash.

Highway and Road Mileage Reports
The Road Inventory & Mapping Sections of the Transportation Asset Analytics are committed to providing superior quality information and mapping of the existing state maintained system of highways and computer generated images of proposed projects for the NC Department of Transportation.
The North Carolina Highway System is a dynamic system. There are typically thousands of changes made every year. This report is a snapshot of the system as of January 1 of each year. The Road Inventory Section strives to update this data in a timely and accurate manner. We include annual changes to the system that are reported to us on a calendar year basis. If you have any questions about the history of this data or how it is acquired, please contact the Road Inventory Engineer at (919) 733-3725.
