BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A highway overpass in Iberia Parish will be named the “George Rodrigue Memorial Overpass” in honor of the famed Blue Dog artist who died in December.

The Senate gave final passage to the bill (House Bill 402) requiring the naming with a 33-0 vote Thursday.

The measure by Rep. Taylor Barras, R-New Iberia, goes next to the governor’s desk.
