Government officials and family of the late state Rep. Phyllis J. Pond unveil a sign for the 11-mile section of U.S. 24 that became the Phyllis J. Pond Memorial Highway on Tuesday. The renamed highway includes the section from U.S. 30 east of New Haven to the Indiana/Ohio state line. Pond, who died in office in September at age 82, was a strong advocate for the now-complete U.S. 24-Fort to Port Highway project that was designed to improve access and safety, and promote economic growth from Fort Wayne to Toledo, Ohio.

The New Haven resident's House District 85 seat in Allen County includes a portion of eastern Fort Wayne. Fort Wayne attorney Casey Cox was chosen in October to finish out her term and is running in the May 6 primary.

The dedication ceremony held at Orchid Reception Hall, 11508 Lincoln Highway E., New Haven, included Pond's widower, George, who received a miniature replica of the sign.
