VA Votes To Rename Confederate Highways

(Fairfax County, VA)  —  Two Virginia highways are one step closer to being renamed.  The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted yesterday to drop Confederate general names.  Lee Highway will be called Route 29, while Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway will become Route 50.  The Commonwealth Transportation Board will have the final say and then the county would need to agree to pay the cost to update signs for both corridors.
