In case you see this after today...

For some reason, the closing parenthesis isn't part of the link, so it doesn't work. Clicking on the link in my quote works, though. Perhaps this is an SMF anomaly?

They tell me that there will be more road articles run in the future, since there is a bit of a stockpile of featured articles that have not been run. (http://enwp.org/WP:TFA)

We had been told that a highway article should run about once per quarter or so, on average, for balance. However, it seems that the new TFA coordinators have recomputed that frequency, and to get 2015 to come out proportionally to the pool of available candidates, we need to run another 34 highway articles this year. The article on the Queen Elizabeth Way has been nominated for its anniversary next month, and there's another article from Michigan that should be nominated for an anniversary in October. There are dozens of highways in the US with Featured Articles that have not been selected for a TFA slot, and eventually, they all will run there at some point.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_41_Business_%28Marquette,_Michigan%29 is the TFA for today (October 10).

It is also that editor's 10th anniversary on Wikipedia. Congratulations!
