Travelers Tip: Interstates ending in odd numbers run north and south. Even numbered interstates run east and west. Most Maryland interstates use a mile-marker exit numbering system, where the exit numbers correspond to the nearest milepost - running south to north and west to east determined by the distance from the state line.

Rest stops can be found along Maryland’s roads and typically offer picnic areas, restrooms, travel and map information, vending machines, pet walks, pay phones and occasionally an RV dump station.
