Legislature to consider naming highway after Barack Obama

Ronald Reagan has his namesake turnpike in Florida.

Florida has the Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway (aka State Road 9A in Jacksonville), the Ronald Reagan Turnpike (aka Florida Turnpike), and George Bush Boulevard (part of State Road A1A in Delray Beach), which is named after the first President Bush. Maybe it’s time for Florida to create a Barack Obama Highway

State Rep. Patricia Williams, D-Lauderdale Lakes, has filed HB 265 to designate part of Dixie Highway, or State Road 811 in Broward County President Barack Obama Highway between Hillsboro Boulevard and Northeast 13th.

We’ll see how Florida’s GOP-controlled legislature likes the idea.
