IDOT Unveils 2009 State Highway Map

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Department of Transportation Secretary Gary Hannig announced new state highway maps are available, free of charge, at the 2009 Illinois State Fair today. 

“IDOT creates new state highway maps every two years to make sure Illinois motorists and visitors have the most up to date information while traveling around the state, Hannig said.       “A state map is something everyone should have in their vehicles and while their traveling.”   

The maps are available free of charge to the public. Maps will also be shared through the Illinois Office of Tourism as part of the Illinois Travel kit (available worldwide upon request).

The total cost for the map printing is $316,840.

More than 2,250,000 standard print maps are printed total. The Official Illinois Highway Map is updated and printed every two years.  The online version is updated annually.

The Official Illinois Highway Map can also be found online at http://www.dot.il.gov along with hundreds of other maps.

Copies of the new map will also be available at the IDOT exhibit located near the Dairy Building at the 2009 Illinois State Fair as well as at the DuQuoin State Fair later this month.
