Each edition includes updated state and national truck-accessible roadways; the latest state-by-state regulations; fuel tax charts; restricted routes, and more.

The new edition, which comes in paperback as well as a spiral-bound version with write-on/wipe-off laminated pages, is available at travel centers, in bookstores, on e-commerce sites, and on the Rand McNally Store.

  • The inclusion of mileage-based exit numbers in Conn. (Routes 9, 11, 17, and 72) and along the Hutchinson River Parkway in N.Y.;
  • The extension of the Southern Parkway (UT-7) in southwestern Utah near St. George,
  • The addition of Interstate 49 (Bella Vista bypass) which connects the interstate between Missouri and Arkansas;
  • Revised restricted routes, low-clearance, and weigh station locations;
