Caltrans crews installed a sign Thursday renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway after President Barack Obama.
The renaming was a result of the passage of a resolution authored by state Sen. Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) and U.S. Rep. Jimmy Gomez.
The measure called for the section of the 134 Freeway between the 2 and 210 freeways to be renamed after the 44th president.
Obama attended Occidental College, which is located near that stretch of the 134 Freeway, from 1979 to 1981 and lived in Pasadena during his sophomore year.
Earlier this year, community members from across Southern California attended a reception hosted by Portantino, Bob and Faye Davidson and Occidental College to donate money for the creation and installation of the signs.
“This is an exciting day for Southern California, and it showcases our deep respect and appreciation for President Obama,” Portantino said in a statement.
