Scope and goals[edit]

To develop and standardize articles on Illinois State Routes, according to the recommended article structure, below.

Highways to include[edit]

Any and all ordinary Interstate Highways, whether two or three digits or entirely in the state of Illinois, are covered under WikiProject U.S. Interstate Highways. Please use the standards on those pages.

Structure and standards[edit]

See WP:USRD/STDS for the article standards and structure.

Categories[edit]

There are a few guidelines for which categories to put these articles in, but overcategorization is a definite concern. Place Illinois State Route articles in the following categories:

  • 1di and 2di highways: [[Category:State highways in Illinois|0xx]] where xx is the number of the route
  • 3di highways: [[Category:State highways in Illinois|y|xx]] where yxx is the number of the route
  • The category for each county the route runs through, i.e. Category:Tazewell County, Illinois.
  • Avoid categories for each individual city on the route. Categories for major cities are acceptable.
Categories for notable highways but not Illinois state routes

Use these for things like Lincoln Highway or Kingery Expressway, not Illinois Route 1.
