New state map available across state, online

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky travelers can now find the 2014 Kentucky Official Highway Map at rest areas, welcome centers, local convention and tourism offices and Kentucky State Parks.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet publishes the map annually, offering information for the traveling public. This year's map reflects system improvements that include a completed U.S. 27 bypass around Cynthiana, an extension of the south Elizabethtown Bypass and a new alignment and bridge over the Tennessee River in Paducah.

The map also lists federally sanctioned bicycle routes along with symbols to indicate limited access parkways and divided highways.

The map also points users to state parks, colleges and universities, airports and river ports, hospitals, welcome centers and rest areas, special points of interest and Kentucky State Police posts.
