We create, edit, and maintain articles related to the highways and major roads of the United States and then assess them based on their quality and importance. We also maintain portals that serve as entry points for readers interested in highways and roads. It is our goal to be the foremost Internet resource for highways located in the United States.

Project goals 2014
What do we hope to accomplish?
Improve U.S. Route 66 to Good Article
This year, it's our goal to list our most-read article among the 947 other USRD Good Articles. In order to accomplish this feat, we first must improve the US 66 state-detail articles to at least B-Class. Please visit the U.S. Route 66 task force to learn what needs to be done and to discuss how best to handle these tasks.
We would like to give our new list standard a good test by taking it to WP:FLC. Once a list gets through there, we should try for 11 more! On average, this would only be one per month. 1 so far in 2014
Improve 250 articles to B-Class or above
Rather than do another stub drive or aim for a specific WikiWork number, we are going to attempt to get 250 articles to B-Class or above. 141 remaining
Hello, there, and welcome to the U.S. Roads WikiProject on Wikipedia! If you're reading this page, you're probably new to our WikiProject, or even Wikipedia in general. This tutorial page is designed to help you find your way around and learn about the way our project works. We're always happy to have extra help, so thanks for your interest!
How is our project organized?
The U.S. Roads WikiProject (USRD) serves as an umbrella project for articles relating to roads and highways in the United States. The main project serves as the focal point for coordinating national initiatives, such as standardization of article structure, infoboxes and junction lists.
USRD has six project departments, which facilitate collaboration, article assessment, and other editing resources.
The shields department creates highway marker ("shield") graphics for use in highway articles. Shields for most existing highways have been created and reside on the Commons.
Every state and territory has its own task force, where you can find resources for researching and editing highways in that area. Task forces also exist for historic auto trails, U.S. Route 66, as well as Interstate and U.S. Highways.
