Industrial Rd to be Renamed 'Dean Martin Drive'

The "Rat Pack" will be better represented in Sin City after a road was named after former entertainer Dean Martin.

Clark County commissioners on Wednesday renamed part of Industrial Road as Dean Martin Drive, agreeing with the developer of a new high-rise condominium project that the new name sounded better on letterhead for hotels, condos and businesses.

"I think Industrial Road, especially in this area, is a misnomer," Commissioner Lynette Boggs McDonald said.

The change puts the name Dean Martin on a road running along one side of Interstate 15, with Frank Sinatra Drive on the other.

Martin, who died in 1995 at age 78, and Sinatra, who died in 1998 at age 82, were among a group of entertainers including Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford, who when not carousing or performing in Las Vegas, made such films as "Oceans Eleven."
