The name change happened at the July 1, 2019 Normal Town Council meeting: https://blnnews.com/2019/07/02/why-stan-and-karyn-voted-no/
Stan was not only worried about the cost to IDOT of changing the signs, but the ripple effect across many platforms – including GPS. All of the homes and businesses had their addresses changed which meant they had documents, advertising, etc that had to be changed. Rivian agreed to cover their expenses, anybody heard if they did?
It looks like Stan and Karyn were right about changing the name causing problems. McLean County still has the addresses listed on Mitsubishi Motorway in the Assessor’s office: http://mcleanil.devnetwedge.com/
Are they going to mail tax bills to these addresses? In reality they don’t exist.
This is the third name for the same road. How long will this name last? Maybe next time Normal will try something more generic.
