Question/Topic: Naming highways. 
Answer/Pointer: 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.
