Welcome to the Louisiana Task Force of WP:USRD.

Scope and goalsEdit

The purpose of this WikiProject is to create, standardize, and improve articles about the state highway system in Louisiana. This project will encompass all roadways owned and maintained by the state's highway agency, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (La DOTD). This primarily includes the system of state-designated highways, as well as those portions of the Interstate and U.S. Highway systems located within Louisiana.

Open tasksEdit

A redirect page should be made for each LA route where if a user searches for "LA 8", Louisiana Highway 8 should pop up. If there is already an article for the redirect page, make a disambiguation page or place a disambiguation tag at the top of the article. The WikiProject's completion list will show any redirects that need to be made.


Recognized contentEdit

Good articlesEdit

Did you know? articlesEdit



Articles are organized using facets of the Michigan Plan and the Rockland County Scenario.


All state highways are to be placed in. To do this, add [[Category:State highways in Louisiana|xxxx]] to the bottom of all state highway articles, where "xxxx" is the four-digit sortkey. Louisiana Highway 1 would be "0001", Louisiana Highway 10 would be "0010", Louisiana Highway 100 would be "0100", and so forth. For hyphenated routes, use the format "xxxx-x".



The infobox in use is {{Infobox road}} with "state=LA". For state highways, use "type=LA", and for U.S. Highways, use "type=US". For Interstate Highways entirely within Louisiana, or for state-detail articles, use {{Infobox road}} with "state=LA" and "type=I". See each infobox for usage instructions and examples.

Stub templateEdit


These should be placed at the bottom of articles relating to Louisiana Highways that are stubs. Articles with this tag are listed in Category:Southern United States road stubs.
