Structure of articles[edit]

Nevada highway articles follow the layout and conventions outlined in the WikiProject U.S. Roads Article Standards. Please consult that document first, as the guidelines detailed here supplement the USRD standards.

Naming conventions[edit]

  • Articles about numbered highways shall follow the appropriate naming conventions established at WP:USSH.
  • Other articles within the scope of this project should use a commonly recognized name, following the guidelines of WP:NAME.

Infobox[edit]

{{Infobox road}} is the standard template used to create the information box on Nevada roads articles. See the template documentation for full a complete list of parameters and usage instructions.

Below is the basic syntax necessary to generate an infobox with the parameters most commonly used on Nevada articles, along with Nevada-specific parameter notes.

Junction lists[edit]

All Nevada road articles about an active numbered highway shall have a junction table created in compliance with MOS:RJL. Tabular road junction lists shall be created using the {{jctint}} family of templates, using {{NVint}} for each row entry and enclosing the table between {{jcttop}} and {{jctbtm}} tags. Use of background colors is encouraged (subject to MOS:RJL provisions).

Participation[edit]

If you are interested in editing Nevada road articles, add your username and info to the centralized U.S. Roads participants list. (The old Nevada Roads participants list, which can be found here, is being phased out.)
