Phares Duverne, Carmelau Monestime and Trooper Patrick Ambroise received posthumous honor on Wednesday after Gov. Rick Scott signed SB 368 into law to change the name of fifty Florida roads, highways and bridges.
The measure, which goes into effect July 1, creates new designations for facilities around the state, naming them in honor of fallen soldiers, law enforcement officials and community members.
The bill also directs the Florida Department of Transportation to put up“suitable markers” along the roads.
S.R. 909/W. Dixie Highway between N.E. 6th Avenue and N.E. 10th Avenue is designated as “Phares Duverne Highway”.
N.W. 2nd Avenue between N.W. 103rd Street and N.W. 111th Street is designated as “Carmelau Monestime Street.”
The Homestead Extension of the Florida Turnpike/S.R. 821 between mile marker 34 and mile marker 36 is designated as “Trooper Patrick Ambroise Memorial Highway.”
