Despite his unpopularity in his state, Gov. Chris Christie is getting a road named after his him, right in Morris County.
Yep, that's right. Next time you're driving around Morris County, expect to see a road called "Governor Chris Christie Way." While the New Jersey governor has faced the lowest approval rating in the country, he can now end his term with the honor of having a road in his name.
Gov. Chris Christie lives right in Mendham township with his wife, and has served the county since the mid 1990s according to US News. He's also the first New Jersey governor from that area since the 1800s.
The ceremony is taking place on Monday, 12:45 p.m. right on 91 Central Ave, Morris Plains.
Meanwhile, as Gov. Chris Christie is on his way out, Governor-elect Phil Murphy is looking to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Wave bye-bye to Christie!
