Los Angeles names stretch of road ‘Obama boulevard’ by : 6:50 am On May 5, 2019

Former US President, Barack Obama, now has a permanent mark on the landscape of Los Angeles, as city officials unveiled a stretch of road named after the 44th president of the United States on Saturday.

 

NBC 4 reported that a 3.5 mile stretch of Rodeo Boulevard was named “Obama Boulevard” Saturday at a ceremony that included a concert, but it was not attended by the former president himself.

 

City Council President Herb Wesson said in a statement that the location was geographically significant as it was located near the site of one of the former president’s campaign rallies in 2007.

 

“With this change, we are publicly documenting what Obama’s legacy as our nation’s first black President means to our city and our South Los Angeles community,” Wesson said in a statement obtained by NBC 4.

 

“For every child who will drive down this street and see the President’s name, this will serve as a physical reminder that no goal is out of reach and that no dream is too big,” he added.

 

The road intersects with other another street named after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as well as the city’s “Presidential Row” of streets named after former presidents including Washington, Jefferson, and Adams.
