I saw this while looking for some county maps. It says "free of charge", so how is it an order? Would I have to pick it up somewhere? I only ask this, because I haven't ordered one before...  :sombrero:

I wonder if I-57 coming in has something to do with it.

I doubt it. Probably the ARDOT transition

The cover is a montage of three photos:

SB AR 549 at I-49 near Bella Vista, the new US 70 Broadway Bridge at Little Rock,  and something else I can't quite identify.

I hope they change to a better font. The font they use is really crappy and hard to read.

That's what you get with 'The Naturally Poor State' of Arkansas!

It's still "AHTD" to me and I will continue to call it "AHTD".

As far as ordering maps. yes, they are free of charge. I order 10 copies every year.

Speaking of this, they didn't change the website, but overlayed the new logo on the same theme.
Yes, I did order one and I plan to start collecting maps before signs, for now.

Are they going to include stubs?
(*cough) I-49 in Fort Smith

Officials? Gas maps? Past? Present? Commercial maps?  City maps? State maps?  I brought home 6 boxes of maps from the RMCA  (http://roadmaps.org/) Meet.

Be careful what you wish for. I have 6 boxes of maps looking for a new home .   $1 a box (what I paid for them), NO cherry picking. Keep the maps you like, donate or sell the rest. 

Plus I have a fine assortment of old official and gas maps :)

I am a bit concerned, it is October 23, and I have not recieved my map via mail after ordering it online. Should I call? They have been due to ship in October and it's nearing the end of the month... :hmmm:

I've not received mine, either. They may be running behind on fulfilling orders. Or ARDOT ran out of money ;)

They have 549 mapped out, but not the stub (of I-49), basically. Sad, that would've been cool to see! As well as, the projected alignment! But, I get why they didn't do it!
