A New Jersey road will be named after Gov. Chris Christie, according to The New York Times.
Officials said the road, Governor Chris Christie Drive, is meant to alleviate traffic, The Times reported.
The Republican governor attended the ceremony for the road, a third-of-a-mile easement for a $1.5 million road that would lead to a county park and divert drivers away from residential areas, The Times reported.
The road has no waterways or other obstacles, so it will require no bridges, according to the report. The governor's political career was affected by the Bridge-gate scandal, a traffic jam that his aides and associates organized, according to The Times.
A June poll showed Christie as the most unpopular New Jersey governor ever recorded for the state.
The next New Jersey governor, Philip D. Murphy, is a Democrat, and critics saw Murphy's win as a response to Christie's performance as governor, The Times reported.
Christie discussed his tenure as governor in a Wall Street Journal column Thursday, saying he is leaving the state in better shape than when he took office.
