Hello and welcome to the Tennessee State Routes taskforce page! If you would like to help, please jump in and start adding or editing. If you would like to join the group, please sign up below.


This task force aims primarily to encourage participation in creating or expanding articles about state highways in Tennessee. This task force also aims to establish standards relating to the display of information in these articles.

An article describing the logic and basic history of the Tennessee State Route System is necessary to accompany the current List of state routes in Tennessee article. This article should feature information regarding the state's Interstate, Primary and Secondary routes as well as Scenic Parkways/Roads, and other worthy material.

The following highways can have entire articles dedicated to them:

  • Routes that are constructed, traversable, state-maintained, and signed with its own route number.
  • Routes that are hidden but are state-maintained and have an unsigned route number
  • Routes that are partly constructed or partly signed.
  • Deleted routes with significant information worthy of an article.
  • Interstates that run entirely in Tennessee (mostly spur and loop routes).
  • Tennessee specific Interstate articles. For example: Interstate 40 in Tennessee.


  1. Develop and maintain articles on all primary and secondary system routes in Tennessee.
  2. Develop and maintain articles on all scenic parkways in Tennessee.
  3. Refrain from creating articles related to "off-system" or "State Aid System" routes in Tennessee that provide no encyclopedic or historical notability.

How you can helpEdit

To maintain a consistent format, articles will be organized per WP:USRD/STDS

Naming conventionsEdit

Articles are to be named "Tennessee State Route XX" per WP:USSH.


All articles are placed into a subcategory of Category:Transportation in Tennessee: either Category:State highways in Tennessee, Category:U.S. Highways in Tennessee, or Category:Interstate Highways in Tennessee. The sort key is a three-digit number representing the route number, examples listed below would be appropriate for Tennessee State Route 1, Tennessee State Route 99, and Tennessee State Route 840, respectively.


  • [[Category:State highways in Tennessee|001]]
  • [[Category:State highways in Tennessee|099]]
  • [[Category:State highways in Tennessee|840]]


Shields for Tennessee State Routes have been created in the following formats "Tennessee X.svg", where X is the number of the primary state route; and "Secondary Tennessee X.svg", where X is the number of the secondary state route. If you need a route shield that has not been created, please request its creation at the Shields Subproject.
