Reviewer: Neonblak (talk · contribs) 11:27, 16 August 2013 (UTC) I will be reviewing this nomination. Seems to have been delisted, although there is no information posted as to why.Neonblak talk - 11:27, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Review There are no disambiguation issues and the photos a valid. There are a few issues that I saw:

  • External links

1. Ref #8 appears to have been moved (dead link)

  • Route description

1. "RE 11 begins at an at-grade intersection with TX 72 south..." - Should be RE 8? 2. There seems to be too many sentences beginning with "the road.." (or similar) - Seems tedious to read to me, maybe try some small wording changes. "It.." "The highway proceeds as a two-lane, paved road, traveling northward toward Calliham. The roadway travels through mainly rural areas, where it intersects a small dirt road, before entering the southern portion of Calliham. The road intersects Fletcher Street and continues past several houses, traveling parallel to Naylor Street for a short distance." Does this sounds better or worse? "It proceeds as a two-lane, paved road, traveling northward toward Calliham, passing through mainly rural areas. After entering the southern portion of Calliham, the road intersects Fletcher Street, then past several houses while running parallel to Naylor Street for a short distance."

  • General issues

1. I see the article refers to this as a highway several times, is this actually a considered a highway?

That is all I saw, I'll go ahead and put this on hold for now. I look forward to passing this article.Neonblak talk - 13:38, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

I fixed the link for ref 8. RE 11 changed to RE 8 (silly mistake of mine). I have attempted to vary the sentence structure in the route description. And yes, it can be considered a highway. It is a part of the Texas State Highway System. Thanks for the review, - Awardgive. Help out with Project Fillmore County 19:18, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
