Redirect completion list: Completion list

Scope and goals

This project covers all notable roads in Alabama, including state highways and some major county and local roads. The goal is to organize, standardize, and expand the articles on highways in Alabama to be a broad, comprehensive, and recognized resource.

How you can help

Recognized content

AARoads:Alabama/Recognized content


Structure and standards

Articles should follow AA:MURA.

Naming conventions

The following names and abbreviations should be used, as they are the forms commonly used by ALDOT; see AA:NC for information on how to apply them.

Official name Article title Abbreviation
State Route X Alabama State Route X SR-X
U.S. Highway X U.S. Route X in Alabama
(for consistency with other states)
Interstate X Interstate X in Alabama
(for multi-state routes)


The various shield graphics are located in Category:Alabama State Route 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.


All state highways should include the category tag: [[Category:State highways in Alabama|nnnA]] where nnn is a 3-digit route number, and A is the letter designation if any (e.g. SR-1A is "001A", SR-2 is "002"). Also place the article in the category for any counties and cities it passes through, with a sort key of - for example - "State Route 001A" (for SR-1A), "U.S. Highway 80-2" (for US-280), or "Interstate 59-4" (for I-459). Use Category:Interstate Highways in Alabama for highways that are also part of the Interstate Highway System in the state and Category:U.S. Highways in Alabama for highways that are also part of the U.S. Highway System in the state.



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

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