U.S. Route 331 in Florida[edit]

Why did you redirect U.S. Route 331 in Florida? ---------User:DanTD (talk) 13:20, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

US 331 only goes through two states (Florida and Alabama) and we generally only do state-detail pages if a highway goes through at least three states, and sometimes not even then. US 331 is only 150 miles total and that's definitely enough one article can handle. Dough4872 21:47, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
I have to agree with Dough here. The route is only 150 miles long, definitely short enough for one article. For comparison, check out U.S. Route 35, which is 417 miles all in one article. As it is, I think the Florida section of the RD is way too long now. If the Alabama section was brought up to the same standard as Florida's, it would be over 2000 words; that's ridiculous. U.S. Route 491, which is a Featured Article, is only 2300 words long total. –Fredddie 22:58, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
If anything the current length is the best reason for maintaining the split. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 03:08, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Well the route description for the Florida portion is too long, need to cut out some of the excess detail. Dough4872 03:13, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Before the merge, it was fine. A separate U.S. Route 331 in Alabama article with more detail wouldn't be such a bad idea either. It's not like U.S. Route 123 where you only have a small sliver in Georgia, or U.S. Route 58 with a tiny portion in Tennessee. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 12:10, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Again, US 331 is only 150 miles total. There are several single-state roads of greater length, so I see no reason for three articles to cover US 331 when one will do just fine. The problem with the article currently is the Florida route description has way too much detail and needs to be pruned down. We do not need to mention every single intersection, down to intersections with local streets, and every single landmark, down to houses and gas stations. If the Florida route description is pruned down then you will see how it's justifiable to cover US 331 in one article. Dough4872 15:12, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Second nor'easter[edit]

Can you add the preps and impact for the current nor'easter at the March 6–7, 2018 nor'easter as you did for the earlier one? It would be very appreciated. --MarioProtIV (talk/contribs) 20:53, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Will do soon. Even have a picture to upload. Dough4872 21:12, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Interstate 280 (New Jersey)[edit]

At the Exit 15 interchange of Interstate 280 (New Jersey), recent construction has rendered the following situation: 1) Eastbound exit -- one exit ramp "Exit 15, Route 21, Newark, Belleville" at the end of which left turns (onto 21 North) and right turns (onto 21 South) are available. The former are newly available. 2) Westbound exit -- this is no longer split into 15A and 15B. It is now one ramp which, at its end, provides access to both 21 north and south. 3) Eastbound entrance -- they've built a new ramp providing access to 280 East from Route 21 South. 4) Westbound entrance -- this still doesn't exist (yet)

I think the article, including the exit list, should be updated to reflect this, but I'm not sure how to do it. Would you? (talk) 05:17, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

I just made one correction to the above info (talk) 05:33, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

April plains blizzard[edit]

You know the drill. Thankfully not the Northeast this time :P --MarioProtIV (talk/contribs) 00:06, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, but I'm probably not up for this task as I'm not really an expert on snowstorm articles but was more interested in the Northeast storms since they were of local interest and affected my area. Dough4872 00:14, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Reverted Pennsylvania Route Edits[edit]

Hello, you have revealed an inconsistency in the navigation for Pennsylvania state routes by reverting some of my edits. See for example Pennsylvania Route 164, which I did not touch, where the navigation box leads to 163 and 166... NOT 165 which has never existed [1]. According to whatever project rules you are following, is that article in error? Should there be a link to 165 that leads the user nowhere?

That is the problem I thought I was fixing with my edits to PA 184, 192, and 194. I altered those articles so they functioned like Pennsylvania Route 164. Note from the above link that there has never been a PA 195. Some of the other missing numbers in that area used to exist but there are no place for the links to go in WP. So that is another inconsistency. I suspect that you are sticking to project rules more strictly than I was. So be it, but whatever those rules are, they are full of holes and lead the interested user to blank pages. For what purpose? ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 13:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

These routes formerly existed, they just don't have coverage on Wikipedia yet. Nothing wrong with having redlinks in the browse. We shouldn't be excluding former routes from the browse simply because they don't have Wikipedia coverage. Dough4872 23:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
