Reviewer: Racepacket (talk) 09:29, 7 March 2011 (UTC) GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria Thank you for nominating this article. No disamb. links or invalid external links.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    It is also designated as the Armed Forces and Veterans Memorial Highway, a designation that was given in 2005."->" It is also designated in 2005 as the Armed Forces and Veterans Memorial Highway."
    Your suggestion makes the sentence grammatically incorrect. --Rschen7754 17:24, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    Tweaked. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    " It is also designated as the Armed Forces and Veterans Memorial Highway, a designation that was given in 2005."->" It is also designated in 2005 as the Armed Forces and Veterans Memorial Highway."
    Can one describe the interchange with Route 1 as a "cloverleaf?" The ramp from eastbound Rt 132 to southbound US 1 is missing.
    Changed to partial cloverleaf interchange. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    "I-95 interchange immediately after" - please do not end sentence with a preposition.
    Removed. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    "E-ZPass only ramp"->"E-ZPass-only ramp"
    Fixed. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    Is the crossing of the SEPTA line at grade or a bridge?
    Indicated. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    B. MoS compliance for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and lists:
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?

    Added. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    Add Retrieved dates to references with internet links, being consistent with date format and capital R.
    Fixed. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    Can you add more road names to the route description. For example E Street Road? It appears to change to W Street Road west of PA 332.
    Indicated change between West Street Road and East Street Road. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    Is there any construction or improvements planned?
    Not at the current time. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    When and why was the alignment changed from "Old Stret Rd"? Was it to build a new overpass above the SEPTA railraod tracks?
    Indicated. Dough4872 19:48, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    Perhaps you should note that W Street Rd continues west without a designation until it intersects Lower State Road.

Pennsylvania Route 132Street Road (Pennsylvania)

I'll open the floor, but I feel under WP:COMMONNAME that Street Road, which is 100% of PA 132's alignment and then some should be title of this article. Mitch32(There is a destiny that makes us... family.) 02:15, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose - It is standard USRD practice to name the road after its route number. While I agree that most locals do refer to it as Street Road (as I do), it is still standard for the article to be named after its route number. Also compounding the problem is that there are other roads named Street Road in Pennsylvania, such as Pennsylvania Route 926. Dough4872 02:19, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose anecdotal evidence, plus the fact that Street Road is just too common. --Rschen7754 02:40, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose because I have yet to see any evidence that the highway is referred to as Street Road significantly more often than PA 132.  V 03:07, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose like the others, I need evidence, and not of the anecdotal kind, to support this move. Imzadi 1979  03:36, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
