A portion of US Route 51 starting at N2600 East Road in Assumption north to the Shelby-Macon County Line could have a new name. The route will be called the Conner-Keegan Memorial Highway. Senator Steve McClure sponsored the Resolution in the Senate and says the news follows a crash that occurred in July of 2022.
Senator McClure says his hope is that this kind of crash never happens again.
The measure passed the Senate and now heads to the House for consideration.
