||It takes an act of the Florida Legislature to name a highway (or portion of a
highway) or a bridge. Although some have been named for
living persons the general rule is that they be named for
someone deceased. To have a highway named, contact your
Florida Senator and convince him/her that this would be a
deserved honor. She/he will have to get the cooperation of
the Representative to the Florida House, so that the naming
will pass in both chambers of the Legislature.
For a list of highways and bridges named for persons,
telephone Leslie Mamey of the Florida Department of
Transportation at (850) 414-4848.
