Sometime this weekend (but you know me by now, that means I'll do it right now). –TCN7JM 15:37, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Infobox

  • Isn't SR 20 the north end? Either way, I'm also wondering why it's north–east and not west–east. Did the DOT sign it like that?
    • Huge blunder on my part. Fixed.

Route description

  • Located is used twice in the first sentence. You ought to change one of these.
  • "The highway travel east" Self-explanatory

History

  • "ending at U.S. Route 99.[15][16] US 99" US 99 needs to be used in parentheses before being used in the following sentence as an abbreviation.
  • "SR 20 was extended west to Whidbey Island and the Olympic Peninsula over SR 536 and SR 525 in 1973, shortening the highway" Which highway? I know you mean SR 536, but you mention three highways before the comma, so you should specify.

Final verdict

  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (reference section): 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 and other media, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free content have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall: Not bad! I think this is the least amount of fixes you've needed to make yet.
    Pass/Fail:
  • Fixed all problems. SounderBruce 21:54, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
    • I'll pass the article, but I forgot once again to mention that there is no info regarding pavement other than the repaving in 2009. Great work! –TCN7JM 01:18, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
