CORDELE, GA (WALB) - A busy road in Cordele will soon have a new name honoring a Civil Rights leader.
Commissioners got the approval to change Seventh Street to Martin Luther King, Junior Boulevard.
Commissioner Royce Reeves brought the idea up in a recent city council meeting.
"Me being an elected official, and one of the leaders here, I felt it was right and long overdue to give honor to Dr. Martin Luther King," he said.
No date has been set for the official renaming ceremony.
