Length calculation[edit]

To derive the length of the freeway, the following three numbers were calculated:

  1. Length of US 20 segment in IN: MP 98.65 − MP 70.53 = 28.12 mi
  2. Length of non-concurrent US 31 segment in IN: MP 266.02 − MP 262.24 = 3.78 mi
  3. Length of US 31 segment in MI: 24.441 mi (the other end is MP 0.000 at the state line)

Total = 28.12 + 3.78 + 24.441 = 56.341 or 56.34 mi after rounding to 2 decimal places of precision

Future GAN for the article[edit]

I'm not the article's creator, but I've tried to improve it as I can along the way because it's the right thing to do. Honestly, I think that this article could be a Good Article Nominee in the future. The only things holding it back would be some cleanup and expansion of the Lead and removing Ref 12 (Michigan Highways). The lead needs to be expanded to cover the History and Future sections of the article, which could be done in a second paragraph that summarizes both of them. The footnotes for refs 2 and 3 aren't really needed in the lead, and ref 1 should be reused somewhere in the body of the article. The summary of the RD in the Lead should be flipped to run south-to-north to follow the RD. The first mentions of either US 20 or US 31 in the lead need to be unpiped and spelled out in full with the abbreviation in parentheses. Once the Michigan Highways reference is either removed or replaced as a source, I'd bump it into an External links section along with any other appropriate links. If we can find any photos, that would be great, but that's not required for GA. For future work, a   should be inserted in place of any regular spaces in highway designation abbreviations, and the word "parkway" should not be capitalized unless part of the full proper name.
