Couldn't it be devolved to the articles on the road in both states, now that they exist, with just a more general summary left here? A lot of it is really better suited for the state articles. Daniel Case 18:51, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
No problems with that; however, some history needs to be kept in this article so that it doesn't turn into a stubby section. As it is now, this article is B-class - removing the history completely would demote it to start-class. --TMFLet's Go Mets - Stats 23:09, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
That's what I said. What's here should be a general history of the road, i.e. when it began to exist as Route 209 in both states. The state-specific histories belong in the individual articles. Daniel Case 05:30, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
On another note, why a US route that enters only two states needs an article for each state, I'll never know, but that's another argument for another time and place. --TMFLet's Go Mets - Stats 23:12, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
Well ... even the NY segment is longer than a number of our state highways. I'd say that if the PA segment were written about in the depth it deserved within the same article, it and the NY segment would result in a route description that would make the article ridiculously long. Note that there are two US 13 articles as well for PA and DE.
Maybe we should have a rule regarding when a separate article need not be written (we seem to be doing OK in NYSR without a separate article on the NJ portion of US 9W, and I doubt we'll ever need "U.S. Route 2 in New York" unless we want to give incredibly short US highway segments the same honor we give NY 437.

Ooops, my apologies. US 13 is a lot longer than I gave it credit for. Daniel Case 05:36, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
