This expedition is under development. Please voice your concerns and opinions on how to define this expedition, its mission, etc. on the talk page. Also, as this is a group effort please share these opinions before editing this page.

The current status of the Routes expedition is: POOR.

Routes Expedition is a Wikitravel Expedition to promote and coordinate collaboration to create Wikitravel articles for all major US Interstate & Federal Highways, expanding to major highways of other nations if sufficient users join this effort. If you'd like to join the effort, please add your signature to the bottom of the page!

  • Create usable articles for all major highways of the US Interstate Highway System. Wikipedia
  • Create guides which focus on amusement, sights, and attractions within a reasonable distance of the highway.(of course, this is subjective by geography)

Non-Goals

  • Guides will not be
