Rand McNally has released the new annual edition of its classic Motor Carriers' Road Atlas for professional drivers.
Despite near ubiquitous use of GPS for routing trucks, Rand McNally's atlas is often the go-to navigation device that experienced drivers use to plot their course and to use when GPS devices fail to operate appropriately, the company said, adding that the Motor Carriers' Road Atlas continues to receive five-star reviews for accuracy, dependability and ease of use.
Each edition includes updated state and national truck-accessible routes; the latest state-by-state regulations; fuel tax charts; restricted routes, low-clearance, and more.
The 2024 edition updates include:
- Comprehensive update of fuel tax information, tractor-trailer inspection procedures
- Hazmat route regulations, tips and facts, on-the-road resources, state access policies, and more
- Updated restricted routes, low clearance, and weigh station locations
- Updated population values in the index
- The addition of mileage-based exit numbers along Interstate 95 in Rhode Island
- Revised 22-page mileage directory that includes more than 40,000 truck route-specific, city-to-city mileages
- Detailed coverage of state and national designated routes
- Road construction and conditions hotlines
- Easy-to-use chart of state and provincial permit agency phone numbers and websites
- Redesignation of U.S. Highway 264 in North Carolina along I-95 near Wilson to Greenville to Interstate 587
The new editions of the atlas are available in paperback ($34.99); a spiral-bound, laminated Deluxe version ($59.99); and a Large Scale version ($99.99) with maps that are 37% larger printed on laminated pages with a tough spiral binding that allows the book to lay open easily. All can be purchased at travel centers, in bookstores, online at the Rand McNally Store, and other e-commerce stores.
