Florida Highway Map Key

This key contains selected symbols used on Florida Highway Maps. The maps were produced over a number of years and there is some variation in the use of symbols from map to map. For example, on the older maps, a building shown in outline only indicates that the building was not in use when the map was drawn.

If you came to this page from an Exploring Florida map, this is a pop-up window. You can reposition this window to see both this key and your original map. When you are finished with this window, just close it to return to the map you were viewing.
