Reviewer: Racepacket (talk) 15:29, 1 March 2011 (UTC) GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria


No disamb. links or invalid external links.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    In lead, change "alignment to US 13 by 1990." to date range.
    Changed. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    "DE 71 crosses Norfolk Southern's Delmarva Secondary" - a grade or is there a bridge?
    Indicated. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    Summit Delaware is a red link. What is it - a hamlet or a CDP?
    It is an unincorporated community. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    "with US 301S/DE 71 being designated onto a former piece of DE 896 to return to the original alignment." - I don't think that you mean this literally. Could you please rephrase it? It really did not return to the original alignment, did it?
    Reworded. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    B. MoS compliance for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and lists:
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    "In Summit, the road intersects the northern terminus of DE 15." - I can't verify this. I did find DE 15 on a 1999 AAA Map of DE, DC, MD and VA.
    In the intersection table, Bethel Church Road does not have a DE 15 designation on the google map.
    Added a reference to a DelDOT map. Google maps does not have the best cartography. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    Explain that 301/71 bends around the Summit Airport. Was the alignment straight before the airport, or was the bend created by the new Summit Bridge?
    If 301 was shown one way on the 1990 map and a different way on the 1994 map, wouldn't it be better to indicate a time range "between 1990 and 1994"?
    "By 1994" is another way of indicating the route was changed within that time period. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    Describe the concurrence with Delaware Bicycle Route 1.
    Mentioned. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    In the history section, do you want to describe the realignment as a result of the new Summit Bridge?
    Added some details. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    Are there any construction projects planned for the route?
    There are no significant projects that directly affect DE 71. Dough4872 19:31, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    Thank you for contributing the image.
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
