Ga. Honors Gladys Knight with Highway Dedication

Gladys Knight will be able to ditch that midnight train to Georgia for a ride on a highway named after her in her home state.

On Tuesday, Ms. Knight appeared at Georgia’s state Capitol for an official dedication of a stretch of State Route 9.

“I am most happy for all of us, all of you,” Knight told supporters. “When you ride down the street and see my name, have some pride in it to know that you have a piece of it.”

State Route 9, which is Spring and West Peachtree streets in Midtown, will be “Gladys Knight Highway” from 14th Street to Peachtree Street.
