CHAMPAIGN -- Some city streets will have new names soon. It's been months since the city council changed the street naming policy. They made it harder to have honorary streets.

Tuesday night, the city voted to name part of Bradley Avenue, between State and Elm streets, after Bishop Edward McGee. The other is for Keegan Bannon on Plymouth Drive between Galen and Harrington. Bannon's former coach is excited to drive down the street near Morrissey Park where the tennis team practices.

New city regulations say only four streets a year can be named. The new signs will be up for ten years.
