References: The following claims are unreferenced:

  • "NY 11A begins west of the village of Tully at an intersection with NY 80 near its exit with Interstate 81 (I-81) in the hamlet of Tully Center."
  • "Here, the route also connects to Lake Road (unsigned County Route 134 or CR 134), a local highway leading south to on-ramps for I-81 southbound and a chain of waterbodies known as the Tully Lakes."
  • "NY 11A proceeds northward from NY 80 as a two-lane unnamed road, connecting to the end of a ramp from I-81 southbound before curving northwestward into a rural area of the town."
  • "The highway runs through alternating stretches of open, lightly developed terrain and undeveloped woodlands, meeting Solvay Road (CR 238) as it descends into Tully Valley, a wide gully surrounding Onondaga Creek."
  • "Across the town line, NY 11A intersects Otisco Road (CR 246) and passes several farms on its way to the hamlet of Cardiff."
  • "Here, the route runs past a line of homes prior to passing under US 20 at the northern edge of the community."
  • "Outside of Cardiff, the highway becomes known as Syracuse–Tully Valley Road as it slowly curves to the northwest, matching a similar turn in the course of the creek and its valley."
  • "As the road traverses another stretch of cultivated fields, it meets Field Lane, a short connector providing access between NY 11A and US 20."
  • "Inside the Onondaga territory, the route initially serves only a handful of scattered homes separated by long stretches of dense forests."
  • "After 2 miles (3.2 km), however, the road bends to the northeast and enters the town of Onondaga and the hamlet of Indian Village, the main population center of the reservation."
  • "NY 11A quickly runs through the linear community, crossing Hemlock Creek on its way to another lightly developed, mostly wooded stretch along the east bank of Onondaga Creek."
  • "The route passes only a handful of isolated homes before ending at an intersection with US 11 on the northern edge of the reservation."N Not needed
  • "On November 12, 1908, the state of New York awarded a contract to rebuild 4.44 miles (7.15 km) of roads in Onondaga County, including the section of modern NY 11A between Solvay Road and the Tully–LaFayette town line."

The reason why I didn't fail it for so much unreferenced claims is that most can be referenced with references which are already in the article. On Hold for 7 3 days, I will come back to see what you've done every day. – Plarem (User talk) 09:55, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

What!? Not every sentence needs to be cited; we combine citations and put them at the end of the text to which the citation refers to. Please see California State Route 52, a Featured Article, for an example. --Rschen7754 10:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
But that article doesn't have one reference per paragraph, does it? – Plarem (User talk) 10:28, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
So what? As long as that reference covers everything in the paragraph, there's nothing wrong with that. --Rschen7754 10:31, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
And California State Route 75 is a Featured Article and does have one reference per paragraph in some areas. --Rschen7754 10:33, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for striking most of them, but how is the sentence from the history not sourced? --Rschen7754 10:39, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

The date and amount of road need to be referenced at the end of the sentence, as that is a genuine claim that will be challenged. – Plarem (User talk) 10:49, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Hold on. First off, why did this even happen before I got to even look at the review. Second you have no business denying me 4 extra days to work on it, and I will protest if you fail it in 3 days. Third, no messaging my talk page on my GANs. Fourthly, your tone is rather upsetting. Fifthly, Rschen, let me look at my own damn article first.

Changed the only leftover claim.Mitch32(It is very likely this guy doesn't have a girlfriend.) 14:43, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
(1) Ask Rschen7754 (talk · contribs) (2) I wouldn't have failed it anyway, it is of GA quality, according to me (that counts as invalid to others) (3) I left you a Talkback on your talk page regarding your GAN. (4) How is it upsetting? – Plarem (User talk) 11:17, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
So what are we waiting on? I fixed the only unstruck point. Mitch32(It is very likely this guy doesn't have a girlfriend.) 17:45, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

PASS — Passed. – Plarem (User talk) 09:14, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
