Untitled[edit]

US Highway 12 extends west to US Highway 101 in Grays Harbor County, Washington.

"Start and end"[edit]

Ive changed the start point to detroit as it is where the highways construction began. Unless there is an official system whereas all highways go west to east it seems logocal to write the starting point as Detroit. It also sounds less contradictory this way as other sections of the article refer to the expansion westward over the decades. Obviously, while today each end of US 12 can be the beginning or the terminus, the road was first constructed east to west and slowly expanding.

However, Ive left the other sections such has state by state descriptions of the road in their previous order running from west to east as a compromise as they do not directly refer to the actual construction of the road but can be seen as a random choice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Swanson16 (talkcontribs) 13:24, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Actually, this makes the article read a bit strangely. The first paragraph says it runs from Washington to Michigan, and then the second says it starts in Detroit.

Also, the Wisconsin section runs East to West. Can someone with more knowledge of the route in that state please rework this? Canth1 (talk) 18:45, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

There are rules for that sort of thing?[edit]

I figured AASHTO could terminate a U.S. Highway wherever they wanted to. —Rob (talk) 15:09, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
