An Oklahoma Bridge Renamed After President Bush

An Oklahoma bridge will soon have a new name.

The Oklahoma's Red River border with Texas on I-44 might soon be named after former president George W. Bush. The bill is heading to the governor's desk.

The Oklahoma house gave final approval Monday to renaming the southbound Interstate 44 bridge in Cotton County.

The measure also directs the department of transportation to create signs to be placed on the highway.

Freshman Senator David Holt, who worked for two years in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs under Bush, called the measure a "fitting tribute."
