US 202 straight line map

Since the 1980s, JKDA has developed heads-up maps for PennDOT. If the direction the user is facing is at the top of the map, right on the map is right on the road, and the type is still right-side up. This map shows the final form of a multi-year enhancement of US 202, and is 8" x 36" unfolded. Below is a detail showing how blended color is used to indicate transitions between different types of roads.

Client: PennDOT, District 6-0
