JONESBORO: Aviation Boulevard to be renamed

JONESBORO, Ga. -- Clayton County Commissioners have approved the city of Atlanta's request to rename Aviation Boulevard to Maynard H. Jackson Jr. Boulevard.

The roadway will lead to the main entrance of the new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, scheduled to open next spring. It will also create a new entrance to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, providing access from Interstate 75 in Clayton County.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed says the transformation of the airport into the world's busiest passenger airport reflects Jackson's vision, leadership and courage.

Jackson served as Atlanta mayor from 1973 to 1981 and 1989 to 1993. He died in 2003.
