Rand McNally has released the 2016 edition of its Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas with updated maps and content for drivers.

The newest edition includes updated U.S. state and Canadian province maps with revised designated highways showing the latest truck roadways specified by the Surface Transportation Assistance Act. It has updated information on restricted routes, low clearances and weigh station locations.

The atlas also features a 22-page mileage directory with over 40,000 truck-route specific, city-to-city mileages. It has more than 500 changes to truck-specific state contacts, such as operating authority contacts, emergency, police and vehicle registration. A section also includes road construction and conditions hotlines.  There is also a review of Hazardous Materials Regulations.

“Even in this day of electronic in-cab navigation, the large printed format is the best tool to see the big picture and quickly access state and province restrictions,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “We simplify drivers’ lives by cross-referencing the atlas pages and content to the software on our award-winning IntelliRoute TND  truck-specific GPS devices and the new TND Tablet.”

The Motor Carriers Road Atlas is available in paperback, a spiral-bound, laminated Deluxe version and a Large Scale edition with maps that are 37% larger printed on laminated pages with a spiral binding.
