GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    See below for the prose issues I have with the article.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    Why are some highway maps official and others not?
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    There are a couple of pictures depicting the bridge here and here. I'd suggest picking one or two for the article.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    I will put the article on hold for the prose issues listed below.

Lead:

  • I don't think you need to include the OH 253 abbreviation if it's not used in the article. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  • Perhaps include the length in the first sentence instead of the last.
  • Maybe you should split the history summary in the lead into two sentences, one describing the first part and one for the second.

Route description:

  • Maybe it's just me, but "commences" usually refers to a time event.
  • I think you should reword "picking up where KY 10 left off." It sounds silly to me.
  • "The highway exits the bridge via its eastern approach, then soon after, crosses a bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railway line." This sentence has several issues. "Then soon after" should somehow be replaced, or the sentence should be split. Exiting a bridge via an eastern approach sounds confusing, perhaps you shuld reword it a little.
  • Why is the end abrupt?
  • Are traffic counts given most often in terms of AADT or always?

History:

  • The word "iteration" is uncommon and used twice, perhaps you should find a synonym for one instance.
  • The second sentence of the first paragraph is pretty long. I think you should split it up into 2 sentences.

Other:

  • Any sites for possible external links?
  • Any other categories? Is there a category for Scioto County?--PCB 00:57, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
    • I think all the issues have been addressed and the article is now ready to pass. --PCB 23:29, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
