Welcome to the U.S. Roads WikiProject!

We are a group of Wikipedia editors that work on improving the coverage of Interstate Highways, United States Highways, state highways, and other notable roads in the United States. If you would like to help, please sign up, and start editing.

What do we do?

We create, edit, and maintain articles related to the highways and major roads of the United States and then assess them based on their quality and importance. We also maintain portals that serve as entry points for readers interested in highways and roads. It is our goal to be the foremost Internet resource for highways located in the United States.

How can you help?

Just start editing! You can join the project by adding your name to the participants list. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them on our discussion page or through Discord. You can also subscribe to our quarterly project newsletter to keep up to date on project happenings.

New user orientation

Hello, there, and welcome to the U.S. Roads WikiProject on Wikipedia! If you're reading this page, you're probably new to our WikiProject, or even Wikipedia in general.

We also have a U.S. Roads WikiProject Triple Crown.

How is our project organized?

The U.S. Roads WikiProject (USRD) serves as an umbrella project for articles relating to roads and highways in the United States. The main project serves as the focal point for coordinating national initiatives, such as standardization of article structure, infoboxes and junction lists.

USRD has five project departments, which facilitate collaboration, article assessment, and other editing resources.

  • The assessment department handles assessment criteria and programs for USRD.
  • The maps department creates and maintains map files for highway articles. Many maps are available on the Commons.
  • The newsletter department creates and distributes a quarterly newsletter for editors that subscribe.
  • The resources department handles research resources of a general nature for the entire project.
  • The shields department creates highway marker ("shield") graphics for use in highway articles. Shields for most existing highways have been created and reside on the Commons.

Every state and territory has its own task force, where you can find resources for researching and editing highways in that area. Task forces also exist for historic auto trails, U.S. Route 66, as well as Interstate and U.S. Highways.

What guidelines can we offer?

We have four guidelines for highway articles:

State subprojects may set limited standards that apply to their state only, in order to resolve any conflicts that arise when USRD standards do not work well with a situation unique to that state.
