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

Scope and goals

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

Structure and standards

Articles should follow AA:MURA.

Naming convention

Articles should be titled "Maine State route X" per AA:NC.


The various shield graphics are located in Category:Massachusetts 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.


Articles should be placed in the following categories as appropriate:



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