|A subpage for a department of the U.S. Roads WikiProject|
|This page has a backlog that requires the attention of willing road editors.
Please remove this notice when the backlog is cleared.
|There are currently 80 FA, GA, or A-Class U.S. road articles without maps. Please consider making maps for these upper-tier articles.|
|This page is archived by.|
You can request maps on this page. Your request will then be handled by a participant of the maps department. Instructions and guidelines are provided below. Requests will typically be handled by a member of the maps department; however, they can be completed by anyone willing to take on the request.
If you can create a KML file for the article, please do so, and note the existence of the KML in your request. KML files can be imported into GIS software, which may significantly expedite your request.

US 66 state-detail KMLs
- Class: 8 C-Class articles and 1 B-Class article
- Action required: New KMLs
- KML: That's what this request will create!
- Status: New request
- Comments: Of the US 66 articles, only the Kansas state-detail article has a KML. If a few of us take a few days, we can get them knocked out. I think it would be neat if we could show how the route changed, say go every 10 years, so we can show the route in 1926, 1936, 1946, 1956, 1966, 1976, and upon decommissioning. If someone has a better idea of time period milestones, please speak up. Anyway, I'm looking for help to make KMLs for US 66. I am willing to compile the state KMLs into one mega file for the main US 66 article. –Fredddie™ 01:44, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
- @Fredddie: I would like to help, but the US66 route is no longer in use (as far as I know) so I don't know how to easily do it. Thewombatguru (talk) 23:33, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

- KML: Yes
- Comments: Note, the Marine Highway is a ferry system that serves coastal Alaska as our "highway." The State of Alaska Department of Transportation has KML files at http://www.dot.alaska.gov/stwdplng/mapping/kml.shtml. I don't know if when they say "route" they mean for the marine highway or if it is a KML file for the more traditional highway system. Thank you for any assistance you can provide for this project.
