Marker graphics

All of the state highway markers past and present have been created and reside on the Commons. All single, double and triple-letter County markers have been made and reside on the Commons. In addition the default markers for Rustic Roads and Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive also reside there - with the State highway shields.

Maps have been created or will be created for the state highway articles in conjunction with the Maps Task Force using Quantum GIS or similar product.

Article naming convention

The contents of each article in this project should reside at Wisconsin Highway XXX, with XXX being the route number (no leading zeros); also, Wisconsin State Highway XXX and WIS-XXX and Highway xxx (Wisconsin) should redirect to the article as well. (see AA:NC)


Since Wisconsin does not have toll roads, this section is inappropriate for the articles.


Media related to Wisconsin highways should be stored on Wikimedia Commons. Place the {{Commons category}} template near the end of the article using the form: {{Commons category|NAME}}, where NAME is the name of the category on Commons. For example, the application for Wisconsin Highway 52 is {{Commons category|Wisconsin Highway 52}}. All of the categories are children of the Commons category Category:Roads in Wisconsin.


Add the following to the bottom of the page include in the Category for the article: [[Category:State highways in Wisconsin|###]] for state trunk highways; the number should be three digits, padded with leading zeroes as needed. For Interstate, US, and former highways, there are Interstate Highways in Wisconsin‎, U.S. Highways in Wisconsin, and Former state highways in Wisconsin respectively.

{{wi browse|previous_type=WI|previous_route=XX|route=WI|next_type=WI|next_route=XX}}
{{end box}}

will create something like

Browse numbered routes

Replace previous and next type with "US" or "Interstate" if and only if the previous or next route is not a Wisconsin state highway. If the previous or next route is a U.S. Route, _type=US if it is an interstate, type=I On pages where a browse box already exists, you can omit the start and end templates, and just insert the wi browse, keeping the list in alphabetical order. For an example, see the browse box at U.S. Route 1 at the bottom of the article.
