US 24 to be named for former Rep. Phyllis Pond

– A portion of Indiana’s U.S. 24 will be named after the longest-serving female representative in state history.

The section from U.S. 24 east of New Haven to the Ohio state line is set to be named the “Phyllis J. Pond Memorial Highway.”

A ceremony to unveil one of the new memorial signs is scheduled for April 29.

Lawmakers voted this year to name the highway after Pond, who died in September 2013.

The representative advocated for the now-complete U.S. 24-Fort to Port Highway project to improve access and safety of the roadway.

Pond started in the House in 1978 and served for 35 years.
