To-do list (Specific)[edit]

  • Take a Photo that has been requested
  • The actual Northern Virginia page needs cleanup badly. It has multiple issues including NPOV, Organization, basic grammar, and some irrelevant information.
  • The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) article is currently a stub and needs to be expanded badly. HOT lane controversy and budget problems should be addressed in NOVA as well as a better overview.
  • The Virginia HOT Lanes article is a stub. If anyone can expand on it, please do so.
  • The Alexandria, Virginia article needs more citations and re-wording, especially in the "neighborhoods" section
