Wanted articlesEdit

If there is any Maryland road-related article that you would like to see created, add a request for it below.

Ongoing tasksEdit

  • Review recent changes to project articles. Most changes are constructive or at least well-intended, but some changes are vandalism and should be reverted.
  • Add missing links or populate redlinks in the redirect list, which is the list of links that feeds into the Recent Changes query.
  • Correct the tagged problems in articles in Category:Maryland road articles needing attention.
  • Update all Highway Location Reference references to reflect the 2014 documents that were released in July 2015.
  • In Route descriptions of route articles, replace Google Maps references with references to the state grid maps using Template:Maryland grid map. Rewrite the Route description if necessary to remove information that cannot be gleaned from the Highway Location Reference or grid maps, or use a separate reference to support such information.
  • Add National Highway System references and statements to all route articles with high- or mid-importance (see the Assessment page). The statements should be in the Route description.
  • Replace National Bridge Inventory references that use Template:NBI with other sources that do not rely on the programming of a third-party database.
  • Add missing routes in the lists of former state highways. However, all added information should be referenced. Inspiration for these missing routes may be found at the unofficial websites on the Resources page or in the All-time list.


You may wish to add this task force's userbox, {{Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Maryland/Userbox}}, to your userpage. For a userbox with a custom route number, use {{Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Maryland/Userbox|Route 16}} where "16" can be replaced with the route number of your choice. The userboxes look like this:
