Former president Barack Obama began his political career in Chicago’s South Side. Renaming the portion of I-57 that goes through Illinois after him is a fitting way to recognize his connection to the state.
This is a frivolous bill that doesn’t serve any specific purpose. Renaming only part of I-57 may also make it confusing to navigate if the name changes mid-highway.
