Robert E. Lee road officially no more in South Austin


A major change to an Austin road finally went into effect this weekend.

Robert E. Lee road in South Austin off Barton Springs Road is no more, as signage was officially changed to Azie Morton Road.

Morton was the first, and so far only, African-American treasury secretary.

Next up for change is signage on Jeff Davis Road, which will be switched to Will Holland, honoring an African-American Medal of Honor recipient.
