State Highway Commission maps are online and can be accessed via our BOOKS. More than 2,700 highway maps, dating back to 1967, are in the system.
Prior to 1/1/2015 Highway maps are cataloged and stored in books HM0001 through HM0004. They are assigned a Document Type of 'MAP-HIGHWAY.'
Effective 1/1/2015 Highway map book numbers begin with HM
followed by the year the map is recorded (e.g., HM2015). The
page will be assigned in the order the map is received (e.g., Page 1, Page 2).
All maps are indexed by Grantor. Here are examples:
