State road map yours for the asking

Written by 

A new, 2011-12 state roadmap can be obtained for free by contacting the N.C. Department of Transportation.

The state map includes a detailed represen-tation of highways throughout the state, insets of major metropolitan areas, indexes of cities and towns. Plus, this new map highlights North Carolina’s natural beauty and the efforts under way across the state to preserve and protect its resources.

The State Transportation Map remains NCDOT’s most popular publication,and 2.25 million copies of the new map have been printed. In 2009, the department transitioned from a one-year map to a two-year map, cutting printing costs in half. North Carolina’s first state map was published in 1916.

To request  a free copy of the new map, go to www.ncdot.gov click on “State Travel Map.”

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
