Structure of articles

Nevada highway articles follow the layout and conventions outlined in AA:MURA. Please consult that document first, as the guidelines detailed here supplement the AARW standards.

Naming conventions

  • Articles about numbered highways shall follow the appropriate naming conventions established at AA:NC.
  • Other articles within the scope of this project should use a commonly recognized name.


{{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

All Nevada road articles about an active numbered highway shall have a junction table created in compliance with AA:MURA. 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 AA:MURA provisions).
