Design change[edit]

This particular page redesign's main discussion point is at WT:USH. —Rob (talk) 20:55, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Content of "States traversed"[edit]

So... what's the balance between "a summary of U.S. Route 20 in X" and "not enough content"? —Rob (talk) 16:24, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Looking at the article as it is right now, the balance is fine east to Indiana, where the sections basically bottom out from Ohio east. AFAIK, no US 20 state-specific articles currently exist east of Indiana, so we shouldn't be concerned with the balance right now, just content. --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 19:41, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Sign in Kenmore[edit]

For a few months (back in 2006 IIRC), there was a sign on westbound Comm Ave around Deerfield St., saying "Begin US 20. xxx Oregon, yyy miles." "20" was on the usual shield, but the sign was green-and-white instead of black-and-white. Anyone else see this, have a photo, or have an idea who might have placed it? --Jnik 17:49, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

On December 8, 2016, state officials in Boston and Newport placed matching signs at their respective ends of US-20; can folks get pictures of them for this article? https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2016/12/07/road-trip-road-that-begins-boston-goes-all-way-oregon-and-new-sign-will-point-way/IKhh3oeYiF3GyhJRGRI2GJ/story.html MarkHB (talk) 16:18, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

What's with the Eastern and Western sections?[edit]

The article has two sections that divide the highway into an 'Eastern' and 'Western' section, but doesn't discuss this. It seems a fairly arbitrary division. Isn't dividing by state enough? MikZ (talk) 21:35, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

US 20 travels through Yellowstone National Park, but no U.S. highways are signed within the park. Charlotte Allison (Morriswa) (talk) 22:02, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
