Hello and welcome to the Florida State Roads Task Force of WikiProject U.S. Roads! If you would like to help, please jump in and start adding or editing.

Scope and goals[edit]

All state-maintained highways in Florida, including all Interstate Highways, U.S. Highways, and Florida state-numbered roads, and any other road-related transportation articles of note. The goal is to organize, standardize, and expand the articles on highways in Florida to be a broad, comprehensive, and recognized resource.

The following highways can have entire articles dedicated to them:

  • Roads that are constructed, traversable, state-maintained, and signed with their own route numbers.
  • Roads that are partly constructed or partly signed.
  • Deleted roads with significant information worthy of an article.
  • Interstates that run entirely in Florida (mostly spur and loop routes). Ideally, these should also be part of this WikiProject.
  • Florida specific U.S. and Interstate articles. For example: Interstate 10 in Florida
  • County routes with significant information worthy of an article.

For routes that have been entirely deleted and whose number has not been reused, these should be merged onto a following articles, Former State Roads in Florida

The following are task force goals:

  1. Write articles
  2. Write good articles
  3. Write featured articles
  4. Make redirects listed on Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Florida/Completion list

Resources[edit]

Structure and standards[edit]

Articles will follow Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Standards.

Naming convention[edit]

Articles are to be named according to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (U.S. state and territory highways). County route articles should be in the form "County Road X (Y County, Florida)", where X is the route number and Y is the name of the county. For roads in multiple counties, the article should be in the form "County Road X (Florida)".

Shields[edit]

The various shield graphics are located in Category:Florida State Road 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.

Categories[edit]

All articles are placed into a category: either Category:State highways in Florida, Category:U.S. Highways in Florida, or Category:Interstate Highways in Florida. The sort key is a three digit number representing the route number. For county routes, use Category:County roads in Florida for list pages only. For all county road articles, use [[Category:County routes in X County, Florida|YYY]]where X is the county name and Y is the three-digit route number (ex. CR 1 would be 001).

Templates[edit]

Infobox[edit]

Use {{infobox road}} or {{infobox road junction}} as needed for articles. The state parameters should contain the state's postal abbreviation. The type codes are the same as for the junction template below.

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=FL|type|number}} into the article. If two to four highways are needed, use {{jct|state=FL|type|first number|type|second number}}. Types can be I for Interstates, US for US Routes, or FL for state routes, or CR for county routes. Further instructions can be found on the documentation page.

Stub[edit]

Use {{Florida-road-stub}}
