Barack Obama Gets Highway Named After Him In Los Angeles

The state is looking to get the final approval to change the name of the 134 Freeway to President Barack H. Obama Highway in his honor.  Anthony Portantino California State Senator said,“It is particularly proud to stand today to recognize Barack Obama’s compassion and heart and dignity on a day when we sorely need compassion, heart and dignity expressed,”. The cost of signs for naming other stretches of freeways in honor of public figures has ranged from $3,000 to $7,000.
