Alberta Official Road Maps Gallery
|From 1927 to 2010, the Alberta Official Road Maps Gallery on Alberta Roads is the largest known online collection of scanned cover images from the Alberta Official Road Map series.
Select one of the links below to view the covers of the road maps from the corresponding era.
|All of the covers presented, with the exception of five, were scanned from my own Alberta Official Road Map collection.
If you would like to contribute a scanned image to the cover library, please to make arrangements.
Better yet, if you happen to have extra copies of those maps presented in my Want List, please to discuss a sale or trade.
Alberta 2010 Official Road Map
Priced (“Suggested Retail Price�) version is shown above.
The 2010 edition of the Alberta Official Road Map is now available.
Like all editions published since 1992, two versions are being distributed.
However, like all editions published since 2001, the two versions are nearly identical.
The only difference between the two versions is that the Priced version has Suggested Retail Price printed in the upper left corner of the map cover, while the Unpriced version does not have this text printed in the upper left corner of the map cover.
The Unpriced (“Free�) version is distributed by Travel Alberta at its visitor information centre in West Glacier, Montana. It is also distributed by Travel Alberta over the phone to callers that are from outside Canada.
The Priced (“Suggested Retail Price�) version is distributed by Travel Alberta at its visitor information centres within Alberta and in Field, British Columbia. It is also distributed by Travel Alberta over the phone to callers that are from within Canada.
To order a copy of the Alberta 2010 Official Road Map from Travel Alberta, call 1.800.ALBERTA (252.3782) if you are located within North America. If you are located outside of North America, Travel Alberta can be reached by calling 1.780.427.4321.
The Priced version of the Alberta 2010 Official Road Map can also be ordered through Alberta Queen’s Printer by Alberta-based customers. It is unknown at this time if customers from elsewhere within Canada or from outside of Canada receive the Priced or Unpriced version when ordering from the Alberta Queen’s Printer.
Like all editions published since 1990, the Alberta 2010 Official Road Map measures 4.5" � 10.5". The front cover features a photo of two motorcyclists traveling on Highway 36 after crossing the Chin Reservoir, approximately 20 kilometres south of Taber.
The rear cover features: a message from the Premier of Alberta; Canada entry regulations; land ports of entry and hours; an advisement about seat belts; details about visitor information centres; and Travel Alberta contact information.
Fully opened, the map is nine panels tall and two panels wide, measuring approximately 40.5" � 21". The front side, or the provincial side, includes: an “Index to Place Names in Alberta�; an “Alberta Distance Chart�; and a map legend.
The rear side, or the inset side, includes a map legend, an “Out of Province Distances� chart, and insets for Fort McMurray, Leduc, Grande Prairie, Spruce Grove, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Jasper, Canmore, Airdrie, Wetaskiwin, Banff, Lloydminster, Drumheller, Camrose, Calgary, and the Banff–Calgary Corridor. It also includes a consolidated inset for Edmonton, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, and Fort Saskatchewan.
