GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Rhode Island Route 37/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Comments:

  1. Recently, a new addition to the MOS called WP:ALT has been introduced that calls for alternative text to be included in an image to help visually impaired readers. The alt= parameter should be added to each image and the junctions in the infobox should use {{jct}}.
    Done - changed to {{jct}} in the infobox. The other images in the article already have alt text. -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
  2. "limited-access freeway" sounds wordy, "freeway" would simply suffice here.
    Done -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
  3. "freeway began completion"? "completion" should be "construction".
    Fixed -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
  4. Do not use "then" in describing progression of route in route description.
    Fixed -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
  5. "the freeway and has a complicated interchange" sounds awkward. In addition, what makes the interchange so complicated?
    Removed "and". The varying right-hand and left-hand exits as well as the ref to the aerial map display how the interchange is complicated. -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
  6. The sentence "Archaeological research indicated that the portion of Route 37 in Cranston between Exits 2 and 3 was inadvertently constructed over a portion of the State Farm Cemetery in the 1960s; the cemetery's wooden burial markers had deteriorated by the time Route 37 was constructed, and environmental studies that would have indicated the location of the cemetery were not conducted prior to the expressway's construction." needs to be split into two.
    Done -- Raime 01:56, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

I am placing the article on hold. Dough4872 (talk) 00:46, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
