1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct.

Might be smoother to say 'continues to Red Bay in Franklin County, Alabama': " continues to Red Bay, Franklin County."

This is worded a little awkwardly: Corridor V was constructed to MS 23 by 2014.

1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation.

I am not saying this requires a map, I have never reviewed a highway article before; should it/can it have a map?

  • It can, but I'm not sure how to make one. Other articles have passed without a map.—CycloneIsaac (Talk) 19:27, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
    • It is not required, and looks like a ton of work. Kees08 (talk) 04:45, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline.

I think your first citation you meant to go to this, not the sentence after it: " and is maintained by the Mississippi Department of Transportation as part of the state highway system."

  • The citation has information on both, so it could stay where it is.—CycloneIsaac (Talk) 19:27, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines.
2c. it contains no original research.
2d. it contains no copyright violations nor plagiarism.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic.

Why? I do not know anything of the area, is it due to her passing, did it happen while she was alive because she was famous, etc: "The section of the route from Tremont to the Mississippi–Alabama state line is designated as Tammy Wynette Highway:

  • More details added.—CycloneIsaac (Talk) 19:27, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes, yes, that makes sense now. Kees08 (talk) 04:45, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

What route? - The route designation was used for another route from 1932 to 1940.

3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style).
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute.
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content.
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions.
7. Overall assessment.
