SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake City is planning to honor civil rights icon Rosa Parks by naming part of a street after her.
Officials say "Rosa Parks Boulevard" will be added to 200 East between South Temple and 600 South.
Yesterday, the City Council started the process of adding the honorary name. Members will formally approve the change sometime next year.
Councilwoman Nancy Saxton says the location for Rosa Parks Boulevard is meaningful. She says it's on a main bus route and the road crosses other streets honored for civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Junior, and Cesar Chavez.
