Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - NATION -

Of­fi­cials in De­troit are con­sid­er­ing an­other way to re­mem­ber leg­endary Mo­town singer Aretha Franklin.

De­troit Demo­cratic Rep. Fred Durhal III has pro­posed re­nam­ing a por­tion of M-10 for the Queen of Soul. The stretch would be from 8 Mile to In­ter­state 94.

Franklin died in Au­gust at age 76 af­ter bat­tling pan­cre­atic can­cer.

The road is now known by names such as Lodge Free­way for a for­mer De­troit mayor. Durhal said the sec­tion is near Franklin’s fa­ther’s church.
