The Lodge is getting a new name. Of course The Lodge went viral recently when a few drivers decided to do donuts in the middle of traffic (his the birth of the phrase “we on the lodge wit it”). Now, The Lodge will become famous for something more positive. According to reports a portion of The Lodge will be renamed after Aretha Franklin. The new name will be “Aretha L. Franklin Memorial Highway“. According to Metrotimes:
“…Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a House bill introduced by Rep. Leslie Love, D-Detroit.
“I’m honored to be able to dedicate a portion of the M-10 freeway to remember Aretha and all she did for our state,” Whitmer said in a statement. “Aretha Franklin was an American icon. She began her career here in the heart of Detroit. Her creativity and voice contributed to our musical and cultural history in Michigan.”
This is amazing!!
