WELCOME 2000's Pennsylvania State Road Maps WELCOME

Pennsylvania has continued to issue occasional 'Official' road maps into the new century; however there are rumors some states have stopped issuing maps due to the rise of car navigation systems and GPS.


2000 This official map has the website of the Department of Transportation: www.dot.state.pa.us . It is 27 x 44 inches and here is the map image.
2001 No official map issued. This map was put out by the Department of Conservation; here is the map image. The layout is similar to the "official" maps, but this one is 22 x 36 inches.
2002 This map has the same image on the cover as the 2000 map, but the lettering on the front is slightly different. Also, on the verso is a new message from Governor Mark Schweiker, who took over after Tom Ridge resigned and decamped to Washington, D.C. to join the Bush cabinet.
2002 Pennsylvania Turnpike Map and Travel Guide, Computer generated by Department of Transportation Geographic Information Division, Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. This map is surrounded by a figurative strip map of the turnpike as shown here. City maps on the verso.
2003 There are several tourist attractions featured on the cover of this 27 x 44 inch map. The elk is part of a ~500 or so herd that roams (yes) Elk County and parts of the surrounding counties. Elk became extinct in Pennsylvania in the late 1800s or early 1900s and this herd was started with a small group brought from the Rocky Mountains.
2004 No official map issued. Road construction locations are shown on this colorful small figurative map; here is the map image.
2005 This map is the same size as the 2003 map but updated; here is the map image.
2006 This photo is not real, but a composite image. The framing architecture and the couple on the bench are in the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh and the river view is along the Delaware in Bucks County. The map is similar to the previous ones, but updated.
2007 This is a view of Pittsburgh from the West End park. The basic map design is the same as previous ones.
2007 Fallingwater, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is the most famous structure in western Pennsylvania. It is located in the Laurel Highlands not far from Ohiopyle State Park. This map, or the one above, were possibly intended for 2008 but dated 2007.
  2008 No official map issued.
2009 This scene is presumably from somewhere in Adams or York counties. Here is the map image; and the same basic design, except for upgrades, has been used for the last ten years.
