KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- An effort is underway to rename a section of Oak Ridge Highway (TN-62) from Beaver Ridge Road to Stoneridge Drive to "Midshipman William McKamey Memorial Highway."
Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett asked Senator Randy McNally to bring the motion before the legislature. It's expected to come before the state senate this week.
The section of road is in front of Grace Christian Academy.
