Exit ramps and entrance ramps (on-ramps)
For '''Exit Ramps''', if an exit is:
* '''''Signed and numbered''''' - name the exit ramp as such: "Exit  24:  US-103  /  Schwarzenegger  Rd". In other words, start with the word "Exit" followed by the exit number, follow the exit number with a colon ("  :  "), and separate all elements (shields and names) after the colon with slashes ("  /  ").* * If an exit number contains one or more letters, include it exactly as displayed on the sign: "Exit 33B: Running Man St", or "Exits 35C-B-A: Junior Dr / Twins Ave / Jingle Allthe Way". - ''Separate sub-exit letters with a hyphen. Do not leave spaces between the hyphen and the adjacent characters.''* '''''Signed and unnumbered''''' - name the exit ramp as such: "to  SR-33  /  Kindergarten  Ct". In other words, start with the word "to" (lowercase) followed by all elements on the sign (shields and names), separated with slashes ("  /  "). {{color|'''(This rule has changed recently.)'''|color=red}}
** '''''Note:''' If the exit number is assigned and designated by the local roadway agency, but does not yet appear on the sign, it is OK to include the exit number in advance of it appearing on the road sign. This prevents additional updates later when the numbered sign is added to the roadway, and helps visual guidance when other exits before said exit are numbered. Drivers can better anticipate their approaching exit.''
* '''''Unsigned''''' - include the designation and/or name of the road as if it is signed (i.e., starting with "to"). For example, if an unsigned exit serves "US-12", a signed highway which is locally known as "Michigan Ave", name the ramp segment "to US-12 / Michigan Ave". If only a local name or only a highway designation are present, use only that.* '''''General Rules for all cases:'''''** If a single exit serves multiple roads or cities, use a slash with leading and trailing spaces: "Exit 32: Terminator Blvd / Total Recall Rd".* If an exit number contains one or more letters, include it exactly as displayed on the sign: "Exit 33B: Running Man St", (or "Exits 35C-B-A: Junior Dr to Terminator Blvd / Twins Ave / Jingle Allthe WayTotal Recall Rd").** Separate sub-exit letters with a hyphen. Do not leave spaces between the hyphen and the adjacent characters.* Include everything that is present on the last sign prior to the exit. ''Do not combine all possible pre-ramp signage into the single ramp segment name.''** Remember to abbreviate common words following the [[abbreviations and acronyms]] page.** If the exit off the main interstate or highway serves multiple exits further down the road, it may be advisable not to name the first exit ramp, but rather name only the ramps which are the first one to a distinct destination.

That said, this should only be done if the signage [[Junction_Style_Guide|Junction Style Guide]] for the first ramp is the same as that on the subsequent, named rampfurther information.
For '''Entrance Ramps''', use this format: "to [street name] [direction] / [control city]", where applicable. For example,
