(Jefferson City) – The official 2013 Missouri State Highway Map is hot off the presses and available free of charge.
The map features up-to-date route information and its cover celebrates the Missouri Department of Transportation’s centennial of service.
“MoDOT has been around for a hundred years and we want to celebrate that fact with the citizens of Missouri,” said Dave Nichols, director of MoDOT. “The cover features the new Christopher S. Bond Bridge in Kansas City and has inset pictures dating back to the times when Missouri still had mud roads.”
In addition to showing 33,891 miles of state-maintained routes (252 more than the last map), this edition displays several new features, including the Chicago to Kansas City Expressway (Missouri Route 110), the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge (opening in early 2014), an updated Katy Trail inset and the newly signed US Bike Route 76 Transamerica Trail in Missouri.
State parks, conservation areas, historic sites, hospitals, airports, Amtrak stations, colleges, universities and other destinations also are displayed on the map. Other helpful bits of information include easy-to-locate emergency telephone numbers, and contact information for the Missouri State Highway Patrol and MoDOT district offices.
The 2013 state highway map was printed on recycled paper using soy-based ink. It was printed by a St. Louis, Mo. company, Universal Printing.
