Posted: Updated:
LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The General Assembly just signed off on the county's plane to rename the road "Veterans Memorial Highway.

It will take about six weeks before new signage will be posted along the highway.

County administrator Ron Rabun says it's a great way to honor Lee county veterans.

"We are delighted that the local legislation that we asked of has been passed by the state. It was our attempt to try and honor veterans that have served in Lee County and the United States and all its wars," says Ron Rabun.

The county plans to post four signs along the route.
