Calhoun renaming back to commission again

AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) - Changing the name of the Calhoun Expressway is coming back before Augusta city leaders Tuesday.

Commissioner Bill Fennoy again is proposing dropping Calhoun's name in favor of Veterans Expressway.

Last month in a non-binding question on the Democratic party primary ballot, almost 74% of the voters supported the name change. 

"I think that the vote on May 22nd should let the people in Augusta know what the people in Augusta want and what the people in Augusta think," says Commissioner Bill Fennoy.

"And that is they want the name changed?" I asked.

"They want a name change," said Commissioner. 

Because the Expressway is a state road, the commission cannot change the name on it's own. So Fennoy says he's asking for a resolution of support to go to state lawmakers requesting the name change.
