This task force aims primarily to encourage participation in creating or expanding articles about state highways, scenic highways, US or Interstate routes, historic tollroads, and other historic routes in Pennsylvania.


Articles on signed traffic routes are to be named "Pennsylvania Route N" (where N is the route number per WP:USSH. Shields are available for all signed traffic routes in the format PA-X.svg, where X is the route number. All Pennsylvania road articles follow WP:USRD/STDS.

Major intersections/exit listEdit

The {{PAint}} family of templates may be used to generate a MOS:RJL-compliant junction list for at-grade highways. It may also be used to create the list for at-grade highways with limited-access portions without exit numbers. If the limited-access portion does have exit numbers, use {{jctint}} with the exit parameter.

Further instructions can be found at {{Jctint}}. The easiest way to generate MOS:RJL and WP:USRD/STDS compliant entries for the road parameter is to use {{jct}}; see that template for usage instructions. Types that the template recognizes include "PA" (state routes), "US" (U.S. Highways), and "I" (Interstate Highways).

Userbox for participants of this task force.


All traffic routes are to be placed in [[Category:State highways in Pennsylvania|nnn]] where nnn is the three-digit route number. For quadrant routes, use [[Category:Quadrant Routes in Pennsylvania|nnnn X]] where nnnn is the four-digit route number and X is the county the route is in.

Routes that exist in only one county should also have "Transportation in X County, Pennsylvania" as a category (example: since Pennsylvania Route 546 only exists in McKean County, it would have Category:Transportation in McKean County, Pennsylvania as a category). The addition of these categories to multi-county routes is optional, but recommended, especially if a "Transportation in X County, Pennsylvania" category exists.
