M-28 Business (Newberry, Michigan)

I'm nominating M-28 as a topic. The lead article is about the "parent route", the longest state trunkline highway in Michigan that isn't a US Highway or an Interstate Highway. M-28 has had 3 business loops associated with it over its history since 1919. The loop in the Ishpeming–Negaunee area is still extant, while the other two have been decommissioned and removed from the state trunkline system in Michigan. The loop in Marquette is listed under the BUS US 41 title because that was the designation used for most of that loop's history, but for a period in the 1970s, it was concurrently designated BUS US 41/BUS M-28. As such, the shown redirect does exist. The final loop is the one from Newberry, which existed in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. All of the business loop articles are GAs, the lead article is an FA.

  • Oppose per large overlap with existing topic; 3 of the 4 articles are already part of another topic and the remaining article is LESS than 3k of text. Nergaal (talk) 03:53, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Nergaal, I believe this fails the "excessive overlap" guideline - rst20xx (talk) 11:52, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose - While in theory this would be a natural candidate for GT, Nergaal and rst20xx are right, this does overlap with the Marquette County FT, and per WP:WIAFT, it is recommended (but not reqiured) that "The topic does not overly overlap with a current good or featured topic." Based on this guideline, I feel it is redundant for this to be a GT. Dough4872 (talk) 16:55, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppse Per above. Is there any way to combine the topics? (I don't know the US road system, so maybe there isn't a natural grouping?)YobMod 13:57, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
  • The topics can't be combined. The FT is a grouping based on the highways that exist in a single county. This GTC is based on a highway and its business loops. The Newberry business loop is 3 counties over and about 100 miles east of the other two business loops. Imzadi1979 (talk) 00:13, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Close with no consensus to promote - rst20xx (talk) 13:36, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
