Nominate a fact

You can recommend facts for the Did you know? section on the U.S. roads portal. Facts for the portal "Did you know":

  • Do not need to have been featured on Wikipedia's "Did you know?" main page section
  • Do not need to be from newly created or expanded articles
  • Must be present and referenced in the article that is bolded in the hook

List the fact you would like to recommend below under the "August 2017" section as you want it to be displayed, then sign. The most interesting five will be displayed next month; any extra facts will be held over to the following month. No voting is necessary; however, discussion regarding a fact is welcomed. If you're considering supporting or opposing based on regional balance, check out this page. In order to ensure that the portal will be updated on time, nominations for the upcoming month will be closed two days before the end of the current month.

...although still commonly called Nevada State Route 49 by visitors to Nevada's Black Rock Desert and the Burning Man festival, the highway hasn't been maintained by the state since the 1980s? Dave (talk) 04:59, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

I'll cede the point that this article is a stub and needs work, and part of this hook is content in related articles, but still, maybe this will result in some article improvement. Dave (talk) 04:59, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
