    U.S. 31 to become Reggie's road


    Reggie Miller soon will have a stretch of Indiana highway named for him -- one that matches the jersey number he wore for 18 years as an Indiana Pacer.

    U.S. 31 from the Indianapolis beltway I-465 north to the Hamilton/Tipton County line will be named Reggie Miller Highway within a month, Indiana Department of Transportation spokeswoman Megan Kaderavek said Friday.

    Miller joked that he doesn’t expect much trouble from law enforcement.

    "If I ever get a speeding ticket there, I’m just taking it to city hall," Miller said.

    Miller, now a TNT basketball analyst, is the all-time NBA leader in 3-point goals.

    Kaderavek said no date has been set for a ceremony or for the raising of a sign on the segment on the roadway.

    Miller’s jersey will be retired by the Pacers on March 30. Having a highway named after him is an equally high honor, Miller said.

    "To me, that is as cool," he said. "To have a stretch of highway named after you is weird. I’m on there all the time."

    I don't care what they say I am going to call the entire 31 Reggie Miller Rd. I am just saying this because I don't live in that area and I wanna say that I drove on Reggie's road.

    I wonder if it will be Actually known as "Reggie Miller Highway"...as in the street signs at the intersections will say, "Reggie Miller Highway"...Or will they just throw up a couple signs like what they did on I-65 for Kenneth "Babyface" Edmons or on I-69 for the Korean veterans highway.

    I hope they do the full change, so it shows up on maps and the like, but if it is just a couple of signs...Its still an honor non the less. Heck, many want Indot(IN dept. of Trans.) to name I-465 "Letterman Loop" or "Letterman Expressway" and they have resisted. Letterman is definatly more known then Reggie as far as the fame game goes.
    ...Still "flying casual"

    Interestingly, Gov. Daniels is negotiating with a foreign firm about taking over operations of Reggie Miller Highway and turning it into a toll road. Initially the toll will be .31 cents in honor of Reggie.
