Hello and welcome to the North Carolina State Highways task force 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.

Scope[edit]

The purpose of this WikiProject is to create, standardize, and improve articles about the state highway system in North Carolina. This project will encompass all the North Carolina State Routes (on diamond-shaped shields), the U.S. Routes and Interstates that are predominantly North Carolinian (like US 158) and any other unusual routes in the state (like Charlotte 4); important named freeways are also included (like Bryan Boulevard).

Tasks[edit]

edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/North Carolina:
  • Have North Carolina Highway 2A nominated for FA Status
  • Put infoboxes on existing route articles.
  • Write all of the articles of the NC Highway System.
  • Rewrite articles to read in the correct direction. Several routes in the project are written in the wrong direction, be it in the infobox, the route description, or the junction list. These should be written so that they read from south to north or from west to east, depending on how the route is cataloged. For many of the articles already written, this should be a relatively simple matter.
  • Have 3 Articles Nominated for FA Status this includes NC 2A
  • Have all US Routes to C Class or better
  • Have all Interstates to C Class or better
  • Remove all Stubs

Resources[edit]

These places are usually very helpful in finding termini and road lengths:

Structure[edit]

The structure can vary a little, but it should basically look like the format prescribed by WP:USRD/STDS.

Naming[edit]

Articles should be named "North Carolina Highway n" (where n is the route number).

A redirect page should be made for each NC route where if I search for "NC 8", North Carolina State Highway 8 should pop up. If there is already a article for the redirect page like in the case of NC 4, make a disambiguation page or a tag at the top of the article.

The WikiProject's Completion List will show any redirects that need to be made. (links with no shield at the beginning of the line are routes that don't exist) (currently under development)

Shields[edit]

Route shield SVGs should be named "NC n.svg". Most shields have already been made and can be found in the category North Carolina Highway Shields at Wikimedia Commons

Categories[edit]

Category:State highways in North Carolina

The category is sorted numerically by the place of the hundreds digit. The convention is

[[Category:State highways in North Carolina|xxx]]

where xxx is the route number of the highway you're editing. 1- and 2- digit numbers get leading zeros; thus North Carolina State Highway 6 is categorized as 006. There are a few exceptions like with NC 226A; in those cases, you can just do this:

[[Category:State highways in North Carolina|226A]]

This category will help you find articles that have been created and need to expanded: Category:Southern United States road stubs

Infoboxes[edit]

Infobox and instructions for use are located at Template:Infobox road.
