Maps of Alexandria, LA
« on: May 17, 2012, 08:53:52 PM »

Does anybody have any map scans of Alexandria pre-I-49?  I was fascinated with the road system as a child but I didn't have any close up maps of the town.  I'd love to see some maps from the '50s-'70s.

I have some. I'll try and find them and scan them. Whats cool is to find things like the tri-plex of 71, 165, and 167 on MacArthur drive or the 2nd traffic circle that used to be on that highway

Search http://cida.usgs.gov/hqsp/apex/f?p=262:1 for Alexandria. They go back to 1944 (1:62500, doesn't show how the routes went in the city) and 1958 (1:24000).

I have a 1970s Dolph Map of Alexandria in my collection. What would you like to see?

map by GeoJosh, on Flickr


This from a 1973 Exxon map. Interesting to see the Pineville Expressway with the old 3xxx. You can also tell the old Murray St. bridge  is still there
