BATON ROUGE, La. -- Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a bill Monday officially re-naming the I-10 Twin Spans over Lake Pontchartrain after legendary WWL-TV personality Frank Davis.

State lawmakers overwhelmingly supported the measure during the recent legislative session.

State Sen. A.G. Crowe, who sponsored the bill, said like the bridge itself, Frank was a connector for Louisiana cuture.

Frank died in December from a rare autoimmune disease.

The bridge will now be known as the Frank Davis "Naturally N'Awlins" Memorial Bridge.
