Oppose renaming Michigan Road

33 Signatures Goal: 100

We, the undersigned, believe the name and legacy of Michigan Road carries with it great historical significance for Indianapolis and its residents. In fact, this road\'s creation nearly 175 years ago, linking Michigan City in the north and Madison in the south, represents an important milestone in Indiana\'s first years as a state. Together with The National Road (what is now US-40 and known as Washington Street in Indianapolis), Michigan Road represents the legacy and tireless work of this state\'s forefathers to link together the earliest settlers of our city and state. The Michigan Road moniker should also be recognized and remembered for the important role it played as a crucial link in the Underground Railroad. In summary, we do not support the extension of Martin Luther King Street, but most importantly, we do not support renaming and forever losing Michigan Road\'s special place in this city\'s rich history.
