The Michigan Senate has given  final approval to legislation that would designate a portion of M-10 in Detroit as the “Aretha L. Franklin Memorial Highway

The honorary designation would span a portion of M-10, also know as the Lodge Freeway, that stretches from Livernois Avenue south to Interstate 94.

Franklin died last year after battle with pancreatic cancer.

 

 

The Michigan Legislature has paved the way for a portion of the Lodge Freeway to be named after the late Aretha Franklin.
