Welcome to WikiProject U.S. Streets. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of U.S. Streets and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Scope[edit]

The scope of this project is two-fold:

  • To cover city streets in articles that focus on the local roadway(s) of an urbanized area
  • To coordinate with city-level or state-level wikiprojects as well as WP:USRD on these articles

Goals[edit]

The main goal of this project is to work on city and local streets and get them to Featured articles on Wikipedia. By removing these articles from the scope of WikiProject U.S. Roads, that not only clarifies what both projects are intended for, but creates a forum for users from city projects (such as WikiProject Philadelphia, WikiProject New York City) and the other roads projects.
