Southern California drivers will soon get a chance to drive Obama Highway.
Lawmakers on Tuesday approved naming a portion of Highway 134 as President Barack H. Obama Highway, according to Los Angeles Times. The stretch will run between Interstate 210 and Highway 2.
Obama used to live in Pasadena and attended Occidental College in Eagle Rock, which is near the 134.
“I am so proud to have authored this proposal to forever appreciate and commemorate President Obama’s tremendous legacy, statesmanship and direct connection to Southern California,” state Sen. Anthony Portantino, D-La Cañada Flintridge, said in a statement posted on his website
