Welcome to the New Mexico State Roads Task Force of WikiProject U.S. Roads!

Scope and goals

All state-maintained highways in New Mexico, including all Interstate Highways, U.S. Highways and New Mexico 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 New Mexico to be a broad, comprehensive, and recognized resource.

Structure and standards

Articles should follow AA:MURA.

Naming convention

Articles should be titled "New Mexico State Road X" per AA:NC.


The various shield graphics are located in Category:New Mexico 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.


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