Governor Kevin Stitt signed a proclamation Tuesday to rename US 287 roadway in Oklahoma the “Donald J. Trump Highway.” The road is 20 miles along the Texas Oklahoma border.

Oklahoma has a law that a person must be dead for 3 years before naming a landmark after them. However, GOP lawmakers in the state gave this proclamation an exemption.

The new name will go into effect on November 1 of this year.
