This task force aims primarily to encourage participation in creating or expanding articles about state highways in Kansas, also known as State Highways. This project also aims to establish standards relating to the display of information in these articles. This page and its subpages contain suggestions on formatting and layout of articles, which can be discussed at the project's talk page. To participate, simply add your name at the member section below.


The following highways can have entire articles dedicated to them:

  • Routes that are constructed, traversable, state-maintained, and signed with their own route numbers.
  • Routes that are partly constructed or partly signed.
  • Deleted routes with significant information worthy of an article.
  • Interstates that run entirely in Kansas (mostly spur and loop routes). Ideally, these should also be part of this WikiProject.
  • Kansas-specific Interstate articles. For example: Interstate 70 in Kansas
  • Kansas-specific U.S. Highway articles. For example: U.S. Route 75 in Kansas


See the Assessment Department for details on how to assess articles for this task force.



Please see WP:USRD/STDS for a complete description of the structure required.

Naming conventionEdit

Articles are located at K-x (Kansas highway); if not, they need to be moved there.

Category structureEdit

All articles are placed into a category: either Category:State highways in Kansas, Category:U.S. Highways in Kansas, or Category:Interstate Highways in Kansas. The sort key is a three digit number representing the route number.
