While at the Big E last month, I picked up the latest official state maps from each of New England's State buildings as I do every year.
So here's the Rundown for the New England States.
-Connecticut official state Tourism Map: Circles for 1 and 2 di's, Ovals for 3+ di's.
-The state of mass confusion, I mean the state of MASSACHUSETTS, sorry: Official Transportation Map uses ovals for all routes on the main map but some of the inset closeups use circles for 1 and 2 digit routes.
-Maine Official Highway Map: Ovals for all state routes.
-Official Vermont Road Map: They use a shape similar to the shape of their route marker, a rectangle with rounded bulging left and right side.
-Official New Hampshire Highway Map: Circles are used for all routes 1 to 4 digits, no ovals, just a smaller font number with 3 digits or 3 digit plus auxiliary, etc.
-Rhode Island Official State Map: NEW JERSEY ALERT, NEW JERSEY ALERT! The map is plastered with NJ style route shields marking the routes. They are black shields with a white circular field (elongated with oval fields for the 3 digit) and black numerals.
