"Bud Grant Way" To Be Unveiled Monday, December 1


The City of Minneapolis has announced its intention to dedicate a street near the new Vikings stadium in honor of former Vikings and NFL Hall of Fame Head Coach Bud Grant.

Plans call for 9th Avenue South between 6th Street and 7th Street to be named "Bud Grant Way" during a dedication ceremony open to the public at 12:15 p.m. on December 1, 2014. The name would replace the commemorative name "Carew Drive," which has since moved near Target Field.
