Can you provide a source for the GIS information you used to create File:U.S. Route 2 in Michigan map.svg? The article is at ACR and headed to FAC in the future, and that will be a question in any image checks. Imzadi 1979 → 19:46, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: U.S. Route 40 Alternate (Keysers Ridge–Cumberland, Maryland)
This is a note to let the main editors of U.S. Route 40 Alternate (Keysers Ridge–Cumberland, Maryland) know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on April 28, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at present, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/April 28, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:
U.S. Route 40 Alternate (Alt US 40) is the U.S. Highway designation for a former segment of U.S. Route 40 (US 40) through Garrett and Allegany counties in Maryland. The highway begins at US 40 near exit 14 on Interstate 68 and runs 31.80 miles (51.18 km) eastward to Cumberland, where it ends at exit 44 on Interstate 68. The highway is known as Old National Pike because it follows the original alignment of the National Road. As the route of the historic National Road, there are many historic sites along Alt US 40, including the Casselman Bridge in Grantsville and the last remaining National Road toll gate house in Maryland, located in LaVale. When the National Freeway was built in western Maryland paralleling the old National Road, the part of the bypassed road between Keyser's Ridge and Cumberland became Alt US 40, and other bypassed sections east of Cumberland became Maryland Route 144 and U.S. Route 40 Scenic. Although Alt US 40 is now less important because of the construction of Interstate 68, it remains an important route for local traffic and serves as the Main Streets of Grantsville and Frostburg.

You (and your talk-page stalkers) may also be interested to hear that there have been some changes at the TFA requests page recently. Nominators no longer need to calculate how many "points" an article has, the instructions have been simplified, and there's a new nomination system using templates based on those used for DYK suggestions. Please consider nominating another article, or commenting on an existing nomination, and leaving some feedback on your experience. Thank you. UcuchaBot (talk) 23:01, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lab Snacks, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nuts. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Your USRD featured articles
Hi! Recently, there has been a Wikipedia-wide initiative to audit older featured articles, and we were wondering if you were keeping an eye on yours to make sure that it remains a quality article. While a lot of us monitor all USRD featured articles for poor quality edits, we might miss factual issues where we are not familiar with the road. The discussion is at Wikipedia_talk:Unreviewed_featured_articles/sandbox#Two_highway_articles_recently_reviewed. Hope all is well! --Rschen7754 03:58, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi. A summary of a Featured Article you nominated will appear on the Main Page soon. The TFA text mostly follows the lead section; how does it look? - Dank (push to talk) 02:12, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
