Any recommendations as to where I can download (the more recent the data, the better) US streets for free?

Thank You!

Try US Census Tiger files. May not be the most up-to-date, but they're free.

Thanks! But I don't see a transportation or streets option. Just block group, tract, congressional district, etc..

Any thoughts?

My guess is you're trying for nationwide data. If you drill down to counties, you'll see "All lines". Of course. if you really do need the whole country, you'll have to go elsewhere... :rolleyes:

Yup, I was looking for one for the entire country. I may have to result to downloading countywide ones though. Thanks for the info!

Take care,

You have to download all line data then query it to output a different layer showing the results.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
