U.S. Routes as Subway Map

The latest in my series of transit map-style diagrams - this time, of the U.S. Highway system. That’s U.S. Routes (like Route 66), not to be confused with the newer Interstate Highway system (I-5, I-20, etc.). Without a doubt, this is the most complex map of this type I have attempted - it’s needed three separate attempts over the course of more than a year to work this one out!

As always, comments, suggestions and corrections are gratefully accepted. Read the full story about the project on my design blog here. Or head on over to Flickr, where you can view a nice big 4000px wide version of the map.

Posters will almost certainly be forthcoming after the customary round of corrections and edits. Let me know if you are interested!

36x24” posters now available for purchase here.
