Last year, a portion of Madison (between Brush and Witherell) was designated Aretha Franklin Way.
And now, a portion of The Lodge Freeway will be called the "Aretha L. Franklin Memorial Highway." How cool! It begins at Livernois, near the New Bethel Baptist Chursh where Aretha's father, the Reverend C. L. Franklin was pastor and where Aretha began sharing her musical talents. It will extend south to I-94.
