The U.S. Highway System, as a Subway Map

As any student of bus or subway maps can tell you, the two-dimensional representation of a transit system is usually far from accurate. Bus routes and tunnels are made with geographical and geological issues in mind and would just be confusing if laid bare. With that in mind, designer Cameron Booth took a similarly minimalist approach to mapping the U.S. highway system. Styled after subway maps, the result is an eye-opening look at the country, and how people get around it.

I’m a Michigan native and I didn’t even recognize Booth’s interpretation of the Great Lakes state.
