Nomenclature[edit]

I changed the opening sentence to read:

"Minnesota State Highway 16, also referred to as Trunk Highway 16 or TH 16, is a two lane highway in Southeast Minnesota that follows the route of Old U.S. Highway 16."

The use of the term "State Highway" is consistent with Minnesota usage, and also helps distinguish this road from Houston County Highway 16. Kablammo 22:03, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

I removed the first "Minnesota", as it is bad grammar. "Minnesota's State Highway 16" would be fine but redundant in this case. --SPUI (T - C) 00:06, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

I guess we Scandanavians just don't know how to write.[1][2][3] [4] [5] [6] Looks like the National Park Service[7] and the Army Corps of Engineers[8] don't either. But more to the point: "Minnesota State Highway 16", "Minnesota Wild Rice", and "Wikipedia article" are all nouns, and comport with the rules of grammar. See this article [9] for a discussion. Kablammo 02:11, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

And here is an example of official usage of the term "Minnesota State Highway 16" by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.[10] The text has been changed accordingly. Kablammo 00:48, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Use common names. [11]. --SPUI (T - C) 01:01, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
