State lawmakers are proposing legislation intended to rename a segment of Highway Five near Chanhassen after the late artist, Prince. State Representative Greg Boe says Prince is a favorite son on the Chanhassen side of the metro, and the community is proud to have him. The plan is to have seven miles of Highway Five between Interstate-494 and Galpin Drive be designated the Prince Rogers Nelson Memorial Highway. However, some barriers are in the way of the initiative as a portion of the highway is already named the Augie Mueller Memorial Highway after a former state senator. Multiple bills are being worked on due to that issue, and officials hope the Mueller family will be willing to give up part of their highway to make room for the late pop star’s segment.
