Junction table ideas

  • T-interchanges/trumpets
  • T-intersections
  • RR Xings and symbols
  • Extended water (standalone water)?
  • Divided highway (divided railroad, same idea) full interchanges
  • Make symbols 25px tall so shields fit? Or no shields?
  • Different colours for roads?
  • Maps often use red [1]. That common Map on the East Coast uses red for main roads (single line is non-divided, double-red line along the top is divided, but not necessarily limited-access), so red is fine. Blue could be used for Interstates/all limited access roads, green could be used for tolled roads, red for regular roads.
  • We'd just need transitions and juctions between all of them, including the "parallel railroad" (divided highway) ones.

Canada road notability

The Trans-Canada Highway is notable, and those routes that make up the TCH are notable.

Primary highways[edit]

All major highways and primary/trunk routes (e.g. The King's Highways in Ontario, Quebec's Autoroute system, and Nova Scotia's 100-Series Highways) are generally notable. All other highways built as a freeway/expressway/autoroute are generally notable as well, as are all primary highways in the western provinces and territories. Of course, the article should still make some claim of the highway's individual notability, such as historical significance, press coverage, etc.

Highways that have very little to say about them (i.e. those that are extremely short and have no historical significance) may be better suited to a list, such as list of minor state routes in Connecticut. By using redirects to anchors, a list like list of newly-formed bus routes in Brooklyn is essentially a number of short articles on one page. Alternately, a tabular list can have anchors inserted by using <div id="14A">14A</div> (making sure to align that cell to the top, so none of the row is off the top of the screen), and redirecting Route 14A (Connecticut) to List of minor state routes in Connecticut#14A. This can be seen in operation with Q79 (New York City bus) and list of bus routes in Queens.

Secondary/tertiary highways and county highways[edit]

Secondary highways and county highways are generally not notable enough for their own articles. These are better served by a list, specifically one in the form of a table listing the termini of each route. While for the most part, county highways should be in a list article, there may be a select few major county highways that are notable enough to have their own article. These include freeways/expressways, roads that are former primary highways, or roads with other special historical significance. When writing an article on such a highway, it is especially imperative that the article make a claim for the road's notability.

Named highways[edit]

Often an article can be written about a named highway that may be part of a longer numbered highway, like the Cross-Bronx Expressway (part of Interstate 95 in the United States), or that has no number, like Knight Street or Route de la Baie James. Here, the general sense of notability should be used: can an article be written? If the road is a freeway, there, without a doubt, will be enough information. Otherwise you should think about whether the information would fit better in the article about the place the road is in.

Virginia State Route 7 Loudoun County Route 7 enters Loudoun County as Harry F. Byrd (keeping its name from Clarke County) near Bluemont (formerly Snickersville), meets the Snickersville Turnpike and decends the Blue Ridge toward Purcelville.

Route 7 continues through rural western Loudoun before splitting into Business and Bypass Route 7. Business Route 7 serves the towns of Hamilton, Purcellville, and Round Hill. Business and Bypass 7 split on the western side of Purvellville, and Bypass 7 continues as a four-lane divided highway before its interchange with Route 9. After passing through Clarke's Gap in Catoctin Mountain, Route 7 has an interchange with State Route 9 in Paeonian Springs . The interchange is Route 9's southern terminus, as well as the eastern terminus of Business Route 7. The bypass maintains a 55 mph speed limit as a divided limited-access highway.

Route 7 oncec again splits into a business and bypass route for Leesburg, the county seat of Loudoun County.. The bypass merges with the U.S. Route 15 Bypass around the southern half of the town, while the business route passes through the town and intersects Business 15 in downtown Leesburg, at the county court house.

From there, Route 7 widens to six lanes for the remainder of Loudoun County and crosses Goose Creek, passes through Ashburn, and into Sterling. Route 7 passes by numerous subdivisions and strip malls before its interchange with State Route 28, and entering into Fairfax County.

New York State Route 280 is located entirely in Cattaraugus County. It runs from the Pennsylvania state line to NY 17 and Interstate 86, between Allegany State Park and Allegheny Reservoir.

The route begins at Exit 18 of Interstate 86, and heads southward outside the perimeter of Allegany State Park. The road splits off at the entrance to the park; the straight road becomes Allegany State Park Route 3 and Route 280 splits off to the West. Route 280 continues to follow the perimeter of the park until it reaches the Pennsylvania border.

Route 280 parallels West Bank Perimeter Road for its entire distance and thus is sometimes referred to as East Bank Perimeter Road.
