GA review (see here for criteria)

  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    • The sentence "SR 17 continues north, intersecting SR 28 in Soap Lake at the southern end of the Grand Coulee, to a short concurrency with US 2 west of Coulee City." sounds awkward.
     Done
    • The sentence "SSH 11G was created in 1951 and was widened between Moses Lake and Soap Lake in the 1960s and was replaced by a limited-access highway in 2007." needs to be split.
     Done
    • There are a lot of sentences in the route description that have a comma followed by an "-ing" verb. I would try to reword some of these.
     Done Trimmed to 3 instances, is that too many? SounderBruce 01:56, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
    • The sentence "Leaving Moses Lake, the highway travels north along Moses Lake through Moses Lake North,[17][18] passing Grant County International Airport,[19] before crossing Rocky Ford Creek and intersecting SR 282, which travels west to Ephrata.[20]" needs to be split.
     Done
    • The sentence "The highway turns northeast, passing north of Blue Lake and Park Lake,[27][28] the former having a rest area,[29] before entering Sun Lakes State Park and passing Dry Falls." needs to be reworded.
     Done
    • The sentence "SR 17 briefly travels west before leaving US 2 and turning north out of the Grand Coulee, intersecting the eastern terminus of SR 172 at Sims Corner,[32] before following East Foster Creek to the western terminus of SR 174 and its spur route in Leahy." needs to be split.
     Done
    • As with SR 502, I would keep the events in the history in chronological order.
     Not done The paragraph is in chronological order, excluding the first sentence. Talking about the 4 highways without clarifying that they are the predecessors to SR 17 is confusing to the reader. SounderBruce 21:13, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
    • The sentence "The Soap Lake–Coulee City branch of PSH 7 was established in 1937 to serve as an alternate route to SSH 2F, renumbered to SR 155 in 1964,[45] avoiding the Grand Coulee Dam." needs to be reworded.
     Done
  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):
  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):
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:

I will place the article on hold for fixes to be made. Dough4872 23:52, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
