New atlas for commercial vehicle drivers published

Rand McNally has released a new edition of its Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas for professional drivers. It includes truck-navigable routes, state and province restrictions, as well as low clearance locations.

The 2017 edition of the truck-specific atlas includes thousands of map updates, along with many other additional features including:

  • Updated highways showing the latest truck roadways as designated by the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA), also known as “designated” highways;
  • Coverage of select Hazardous Materials Regulations;
  • 2017 Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas (PRNewsFoto/Rand McNally)

    A 22-page mileage directory with more than 40,000 truck-route-specific, city-to-city mileages;

  • Charts of state and provincial permit agency phone numbers and websites, low clearances, and weigh stations, as well as hotlines for road construction and conditions.

A recent survey conducted by Rand McNally at the Mid-America Trucking Show found that a majority of drivers use the printed product, and at least 15 percent of those surveyed use the Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas as their primary navigational tool, according to the company.

The 2017 Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas is available in paperback; in a spiral-bound, laminated Deluxe version; and a Large Scale edition with maps that are 37 percent larger printed on laminated pages plus a spiral binding for stay-flat pages.

Motor Carriers’ Road Atlases can be purchased at travel centers, online at and other nationwide retailers.
