Quick-glance comments:

  • As always, if you can find a picture of this route, please add one.
  • Has a 'Route description' section YesY
  • Has a 'History' section YesY
  • Has a 'Major intersections' section YesY


  • I suggest changing 'Then, it continues east' to 'It then continues east'.
  • I suggest removing the comma here. "All of Route 246 is a two-lane, undivided highway."
  • I suggest removing the comma here. "It starts at Route 148 as McPherson Street in Hopkins, and heads eastward."
  • I suggest removing the comma here. "The road soon leaves Hopkins, and enters widespread farmlands."
  • Please wikilink 'Worth County'
  • Do you think 'toward' sounds better than 'to' here? I'm not sure. "Near Sheridan, Route 246 shifts slightly north, and continues east to the center of the village."
  • I suggest adding a comma after 'terminus' here. "Route 246 intersects the southern terminus Route H, and leaves Sheridan."
  • I added "of" instead, forgot to add it. :P —CycloneIsaacE-Mail 22:13, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
  • This sentence is pretty confusing. Was it extended in 1926 or 1933? I suggest either clarifying or breaking this sentence off into two sentences. "In 1926, Route 46 was extended to Sheridan, and was extended south, two miles east of Sheridan in 1933."
  • You wikilink spur route in the 'History' section but not in the lede. I suggest moving the wikilink to the lede section.
  • Please wikilink 'Nodaway County'
  • I suggest changing "around 1948-1949" to "in either 1948 or 1949". "The spur route was then extended west into Nodaway county around 1948–1949"
  • 'By next year'? Is it 1954 right now and I'm looking in the future? :) "In 1954, Route 246 was designated, starting from Sheridan, and ending at Route 46.[8] By next year, Route 246 completely replaced supplemental route D"
  • I don't really understand this... It starts in Sheridan but also ends near Sheridan? Where does Route 148 in Hopkins (the West end) come in? "In 1954, Route 246 was designated, starting from Sheridan, and ending at Route 46."
  • A map and/or picture would be nice :D

That's it for now :) Looks good so far! -Newyorkadam (talk) 15:48, 21 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam

  • I spoke to you about s'more comments on IRC.

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

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.
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.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic.
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. Only recent edits (except for one) are from the nominator
6. Illustrated, if possible, by media such as images, video, or audio:
6a. media are tagged with their copyright statuses, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. No images yet, if you could add a map and/or a photo of the route that'd be great
6b. media are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions. Not applicable
7. Overall assessment. :)

Final decision comment: Passed! Looking forward to reviewing more GAs from you :) -Newyorkadam (talk) 23:01, 21 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkdam
