2.1% of the U.S. is Paved

In 1969, the amount of surface area of the United States that had been paved had just passed the 1% mark. This is a map of New York State drawn by tracing all of the roads throughout the state and nothing but roads. Currently, 2.1% of the surface area of the United States is paved. It fairly reflects the population of the state. Nearly 50% of the state’s population lives in New York City.
