GA review (see here for criteria)

  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    "The highway rolls over the Oak Ridges Moraine " sounds awkward. "The highway" is overused in the route description. The sentence "The terrain continues to become rougher progressing northward, with the highway diving into valleys and along cliffs overlooking the many lakes dotting the region, following the former Bobcaygeon Colonization Road for many parts" needs to be completely reworded.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    The lead should include some historical information. In addition, the history only focuses on the route before it was created. Is there any more recent history that can be added?
  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):
    An image of the road would be nice, but not required.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
I am putting the article on hold to allow for fixes. Dough4872 01:01, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Alright I've made some changes, see if this is any better. There is a LOT more to the history, but I simply cannot find any source (besides the unreliable Cameron Bevers source) detailing the realignments and bypasses constructed in the forties and fifties in the north. I've dug up what I can to fill the 70-year gap. Cheers, ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 06:18, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
    • The article looks better now so I will pass it. Dough4872 18:30, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
      • Awesome! Thanks for the review :) I'll add more details as I find them. - ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 18:38, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
