Hello and welcome to the front page of the Washington State Highways Task Force (WASH)! If you would like to help, feel free to jump in and start editing articles on Washington state routes and related highways. Guidelines and resources to help you add content to articles are available at Structure and /resources, respectively.

Scope and goals

Numbered Washington State routes as designated by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). This includes all signed routes (such as Washington State Route 99), former routes (such as Primary State Highway 1 (Washington) or Washington State Route 111), and proposed routes (such as Washington State Route 704).

Basically, the purpose of this project is to clean up the Washington State Highway articles (Washington State Route articles) and make them conform to the same structure just like the other states.
