The 2025 Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas is now available




Rand McNally Publishing

CHICAGO, June 17, 2024Rand McNally today launched its 2025 edition of their best-selling Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas, an indispensable resource for professional truck drivers. Since its first publication in 1982, the atlas has become a mainstay in the cabs of over-the-road commercial drivers across North America.


Despite the use of GPS devices, drivers continue to rely on the atlas as a tool to provide specific truck route information not available on GPS devices. It serves to confirm routes, provide a comprehensive big-picture reference, and function as a reliable backup in case of GPS system failures. In addition to updated maps, the atlas is valued for its detailed front section listings which include:

  • Fuel Tax Information: Essential for managing fuel expenses and tax reporting.
  • Tractor/Trailer Inspection Procedures: Guidelines to ensure compliance with safety standards.
  • Hazmat Route Regulations: Updated tips, facts, and resources for transporting hazardous materials.
  • Updated Restricted Routes and Low Clearances: Enhanced details to avoid obstacles and plan safe routes.
  • Weigh Station Locations: Current information for checking compliance with weight regulations.
  • Population Values in the Index: Revised demographic data for accurate planning.
  • Mileage Directory: A 22-page section with over 40,000 truck route-specific, city-to-city mileages.
  • State and National Route Coverage: Comprehensive details on designated routes.
  • Road Construction and Conditions Hotlines: Contact information for real-time updates.
  • Permit Agency Contacts: An easy-to-use chart listing state and provincial permit agency phone numbers and websites.

Road specific updates include:

  • Interstate 69: Added south of Indianapolis with expected completion by the end of 2024.
  • U.S. 30: Rerouted northwest of Omaha, Nebraska.
  • West Davis Highway: Added near Ogden, Utah.
  • Interstate 691 and State Highway 2 in Connecticut: Updated to reflect mileage-based exit numbers.
  • Highway 417: Added east of Wilmington, North Carolina.
  • State Highway 249: Extended in Texas near Houston.


 The new editions of the atlas are 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 tough spiral binding that allows the book to lay open easily. All are designed and printed in the USA and are available at, travel centers, e-commerce outlets, and bookstores.
