A Los Angeles boulevard will soon bear the name of our nation’s 44th president.
ABC reports that in honor of former President Barack Obama, a 3.5-mile stretch of Rodeo Road, in the city’s southwest section, will now be called “Obama Boulevard.
The proposal was unanimously approved by the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday. Obama Boulevard would run from Jefferson Boulevard to Arlington Avenue.
Herb Wesson, president of the city council, led the proposal. It noted that the area is housed on “president’s row,” a section of streets named after former presidents.
Washington Boulevard, Adams Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard are among the streets located on “president’s row.”
