Troup Commission names roads for families, communities

The Troup County Board of Commissioners formally named several Troup County roadways after area families and communities Tuesday.

County Manager Mike Dobbs said in a press release that naming previously unnamed roads was crucial to enabling the new E-911 system, which will now be able to locate properties along these roadways.

"These roads are named after families and communities that have made significant contributions in various ways to our county and we are honored to recognize their heritage by the naming of these roads," Troup County Commission Chairman Ricky Wolfe said according to the press release.

Roads named for individuals or communities were: Robert Hayes Road, Fernwood Drive, Jones Brothers Drive and Pleasant Grove Church Road.
