Highways of the United States: Maps of States and Regions

In my post about the overall Highways of the United States project, I mentioned that the reason I made the map of the U.S. so big and detailed was so that I could break the map down into individual states and regions. Below is a gallery of the maps completed so far: there are just a few more to do to complete the project. You can click on the “View Full Size” text in the gallery lighbox to see the largest preview for each map.

Project: Highways of the United States of America

After almost two years of single-handed research, design, checking and cross-checking, I’m incredibly proud and thrilled to present my latest map project. It shows every single current and signed Interstate Highway and U.S. Highway in the contiguous 48 states in a style very similar to my previous Interstates as Subway Map and U.S. Highways as a Subway Map projects. Having made two separate maps that showed each type of road, I really had to at least try to combine them both into one map, didn’t I?

This is the spectacular Seacliff Bridge in the Illawarra region of New South Wales, south of Sydney. The bridge replaced an old section of Lawrence Hargreaves Drive that used to hug the steep cliff face and was often closed by rock falls.

Amsterdam’s Red Light District likes to party hard most of the way through the night, which means that you have the area pretty much to yourself if you get up early enough in the morning.
