Welcome to the Alaska Routes Task Force of WikiProject U.S. Roads!

Scope and goals[edit]

All state-maintained highways in Alaska and any other road-related transportation articles of note. The goal is to organize, standardize, and expand the articles on highways in Alaska to be a broad, comprehensive, and recognized resource.


Recognized content[edit]

Good articles[edit]

Did you know? articles[edit]




Structure and standards[edit]

Articles should follow WP:USRD/STDS.

Naming convention[edit]

Articles should be titled "Alaska Route X" per WP:USSH.


The various shield graphics are located in Category:Alaska highway shields on Commons. {{jct}} can create the various links to highway articles with the appropriate shield graphics for use in the infobox or junction lists.


Articles should be placed in the following categories as appropriate:



Use {{infobox road}} or {{infobox road junction}} as needed for articles. The state and type parameters should each contain the state's postal abbreviation.

Junction template[edit]

Use {{jct}} to create the entries in a junction list section for the article, or the junction list in the infobox. To use, insert {{jct|state=AK|AK|number}} into the article. If two to four highways are needed, use {{jct|state=AK|AK|first number|AK|second number}}. Further instructions can be found on the documentation page.


Use {{Alaska-road-stub}}
