The Georgia link doesn't work anymore, and it looks like GDOT may have removed their historic maps from their website...?

They're still there, but the URL has changed. Current and historic maps can be found here: http://www.dot.ga.gov/informationcenter/maps/Pages/default.aspx
Clicking on the link generates "page not found". I think they moved the links again. [as of 8/18/2015]

Pennsylvania's website has changed.  Links to the state maps and county maps are both found here: http://www.penndot.gov/ProjectAndPrograms/Planning/Maps/Pages/default.aspx#

Looks like Nebraska might have taken down their historic state highway maps.

Did you find any of the older Wisconsin highway maps? I haven't.

To do some Wikipedia research on US 8 and US 141, I visited WisDOT's library in Madison in April 2013. When I was in contact with them at the time in 2012–13, they had said they were planning to scan their old maps and get them online "within the next year". I think that project was pending some specific funding or something, and it hasn't come to fruition yet. I haven't found any other institutions who have scanned them and put them online yet either.

I don't know if there's anything useful here that's not on the other maps, but Oklahoma also has traffic count maps going back to 1937: http://www.okladot.state.ok.us/aadtcnt/Default.aspx?list=staticMaps

This link don't work. Can somebody that downloaded all these maps upload them to dropbox?

The Illinois link at http://gis.dot.illinois.gov/HistoricalMapViewer/ has gone dead.

This probably works:

http://apps.dot.illinois.gov/HistoricalMapViewer/statemapviewer.aspx

Illinois DOT seems to be moving content from all of its specialty servers (gis.dot.illinois.gov, eplan.dot.il.gov, etc.) to apps.dot.illinois.gov.  I have to update my plans downloader (gah).

The Minnesota link no longer works, and I'm not sure the historic state highway maps are still available through that portal.

^ Existing link at the beginning of this thread is bad, but the maps are still available on that site.  Copy/paste the below link verbatim (SMF doesn't like the brackets used in the link)

Does anybody download all of the PDF files from these sites and save them on their hard drives? I have several complete archives of several states in case those links ever quit working. Perhaps I should upload some of them to Dropbox.

Does anyone know if there are historic Utah maps available online? I feel like there should be, but I can't find anything on the UDOT website.

WSDOT has added a few 1950s Washington maps to its online archives.

I'd ask the same thing about the post-1966 images. I'm looking at Jasper County, and I still can't get a clear view of it when I zoom in. For all I can see, I-95 always had mileage-based exit numbers, and the segment of US 17 that crosses over into Savannah today could've been part of US 80!

The pdfs they have for the post-1966 maps are fairly clear even when zoomed in...

For I-95 in Jasper County you can see multiple scans at the bottom of this page - http://www.vahighways.com/scannex/route-log/i095.htm - the 1976 scan comes from that SCDOT site.

1976 was the first SC Official to show exit numbers on any of their interstates...

It has now been 6 minutes since I posted that message, and they're still blurry. On your site, they're quite clear, though.
