New 2017-2018 maps are now available, featuring QR codes and updated routes
The new Illinois Official Highway Map, featuring Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site in Petersburg on the cover, is now available. The 2017-2018 maps have QR (quick response) codes for numerous transportation and travel websites, updated route information and useful links.
“It’s time to update your maps,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn. “These maps are great to keep on hand while traveling throughout our state and are a helpful resource in emergency situations.”
Smartphone users can scan the QR codes printed on the maps for pertinent and timely information during their travels.
