RALEIGH -- A newly updated road map of North Carolina is now available.

The 2017-18 North Carolina State Transportation map is provided at no cost to residents and visitors alike.

The State Transportation Map is funded and produced by the N.C. Department of Transportation and distributed by Visit NC, a unit of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.

Maps are offered for free at welcome centers, rest areas and NCDOT offices in every part of the state. They can be ordered online at www.VisitNC.com/StateMap or 1-800-VisitNC. A full-size PDF version can be downloaded at www.ncdot.gov/travel/mappubs/statetransportationmap.

North Carolina has one of the largest highway systems in the nation, and the new map details the more than 106,000 miles of public roadway that span the state. That network includes 79,608 miles of state-maintained roads.

The state map is NCDOT's most popular publication, and more than 1.75 million copies of this version have been printed. This version includes stunning photography that features a variety of North Carolina scenery, from the Smoky Mountains to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

Once stowed in a glove box, center console or used as a bookmark of a visitor guide, the map can be accessed no matter the strength of a WiFi or cellular signal.
