Welcome to the AARoads Wiki!

This wiki is a specialist encyclopedia of roads articles written by your fellow roadgeeks, and we're glad you've decided to join us!

Now that you're here, we have a few important things to tell you about. Our main discussion page is The Interchange. This is where we make decisions about how this wiki functions. We have a Discord as well that you might want to join.

We have a cleanup page where you can learn more how we're improving the collection of imported articles for our use. You can also report technical errors related to the article import process on that page.

The rules of the road are really simple. In short, follow the golden rule and you'll be fine; we wouldn't want you to be cited for a moving violation. While contributing, please keep in mind that we currently focus our articles on highways in the United States and Canada, including state or provincial highways and major county roads. (To express interest in adding other countries, see AARoads:International). We have the Annex here for additional content, like the list of longest state highways in the United States.

Once again, welcome to the AARoads Wiki! We hope you enjoy it here! --Rschen7754 17:36, 14 October 2023 (EDT)

Georgia route shields

Hi, thanks for expressing interest in Georgian coverage on this wiki. I'm involved in designing and implementing the interactive maps on this site, as part of the OpenStreetMap Americana project and its AARoads version. As a first step towards expanding this wiki to Georgia, would you be interested in helping us improve OSM Americana's support for the country, specifically its route shields? We're currently a bit stuck because OSM is tagging the routes in a manner that fails to distinguish between roads of international and domestic importance, or between motorways and other roads. [1] We'd appreciate any help in reaching out to OSM's Georgian community to make them aware of the issue and work towards a solution. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 18:14, 29 October 2023 (EDT)


Hi, I've imported Georgia. One of the first tasks that is done is called bluelinking, which converts links to non-road articles to those on the English Wikipedia. There is a gadget for this in Special:Preferences, on the Gadgets tab.

Hi, thanks @Rschen - I'll have a look tonight.
