(S.D.)-I-90 In South Dakota Named 'Purple Heart Highway'

By: Dennis and Kathi Brown Posted at: 08/05/2012 08:19 AM

PIERRE, South Dakota (AP) - The South Dakota stretch of Interstate 90 is being renamed as the "Purple Heart Trail." 

The Purple Heart is a decoration given to wounded soldiers. The designation will apply to Interstate 90 in South Dakota from the Wyoming border to Minnesota.

 South Dakota's Transportation Commission recently approved a request for the designation. Forty-five states have named parts of their highways as Purple Heart Trails. 

Ceremonies are scheduled Tuesday at the Valley Springs rest area, near the South Dakota/Minnesota border, and the Spearfish rest area near South Dakota's border with Wyoming.
