For now, it's being called the Newtown Pike Extension. But for 911 purposes and to avoid confusion, city leaders must give it a new name and they need your help.
Mayor Jim Newberry is urging citizens to participate in a naming contest for Newtown Pike Extension. The new road will be an important new gateway into south Lexington. It will ultimately stretch from West Main Street, where Newtown Pike now ends, to Broadway. You can submit your idea for the road's name on the city's website. You have until August 18.
