While the current White House “residents” are continuously belittling and trying to tear apart everything put into place by former President Barack Obama, the General Assembly of the State of Illinois has convened and voted to name a portion of interstate I-55 after the nations beloved former leader of the free world President Barack Obama.
General Assembly members voted by joint resolution to rename roughly an 80-mile stretch of the interstate that travels from Lake Shore Drive to as far south as St. Louis, MO. Barack Obama Presidential Expressway will stretch from I-55 and Illinois Tollway I-294 to mile marker 202 just shy of Pontiac, IL.
The date for the placement of new signage and renaming has not been announced. EarHutle411 will provide updates as they are released.
