Structure and standards [ edit ]
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.
