Detroit freeway could be renamed for Aretha Franklin
DETROIT (AP) — Officials in Detroit are considering another way to remember legendary Motown singer Aretha Franklin.
Detroit Democratic Rep. Fred Durhal III has proposed renaming a portion of M-10 for the Queen of Soul. The stretch would be from 8 Mile to Interstate 94.
Franklin died in August at age 76 after battling pancreatic cancer.
The road is now known by various names such as Lodge Freeway for a former Detroit mayor. Durhal says the section is near Franklin’s father’s church.
The measure has 80 co-sponsors and could be heard before the legislature adjourns its two-year session late this year.
The Detroit City Council acted last year to name a downtown street for Franklin and recently approved memorializing her in a city park .
