MARYLAND OFFICIAL MAPS

Notes:
According to a letter from the Maryland DOT, there was a small, interim printing of the base 1985-86 map in 1987 when Governor Schaefer took office. The new 1987 maps weren’t ready, so the old map base from 1985-86 was re-issued with a new cover design. This map is noted below as [1987 A].

A series of maps issued from at least 1965 to 1989, are titled “with Wildlife Resources Map” or “and Natural Resources Map.” These maps were issued by the Department of Natural Resources. They do contain the official Maryland state highway map inside, along with natural resource information.

Although the Maryland DOT reports that no map was issued for 1988, there is a map titled “Maryland Scenic Routes” which was issued by the DOT. “Maryland Scenic Routes” maps were also published in 1992 and 2000 with DOT copyrighted base maps. These maps were reprinted in following years with different front & rear covers.

Special maps were also produced by the DOT titled “Map of Historic Maryland” (1966 and 1967), “Bicycle Touring” (1987 and 1998 base maps published with different cover in 2003), and “Maryland Military Monuments” (1998).

“MSA” refers to the Maryland State Archives map collection.
