Ralph Carr Highway Signs Come Out Sunday

Gov. Bill Ritter will unveil a road sign honoring former Gov. Ralph Carr, who resisted efforts to imprison Japanese-Americans during World War II, at a ceremony at the Capitol on Sunday.

The General Assembly passed a resolution requiring a portion of U.S. Highway 285 to be re-named in honor of Carr last spring.

The new road signs will be placed on a section of Highway 285.
