RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond City Council voted Monday night to rename part of Jefferson Davis Highway to Richmond Highway.

This is within city limits between Hull Street and Walmsley Boulevard on the southside.

Last month, a committee voted to recommend that the city council approve the ordinance.

Portions of the highway in Northern Virginia have already been renamed to Richmond Highway.
