Tony Gwynn Memorial Freeway
The stretch of Interstate 15 between Scripps Poway Parkway and Camino Del Norte was recently dedicated as the Tony Gwynn Memorial Freeway. Dr. Alicia Gwynn, Tony Gwynn, Jr., and Anisha Gwynn Jones joined Assemblymember Brian Maienschein, San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts, and Caltrans District Director Lori Berman for the dedication ceremony, unveiling the memorial signs. The freeway was named thanks to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 63, authored by Maienschein. “Tony Gwynn and his family left a lasting impact on San Diego through his impressive feats on the baseball field, dedication to San Diego State University, and the Gwynn family’s commitment to bettering the lives of children in the region,” said Maienschein. “The Tony Gwynn Memorial Freeway is traveled by thousands of vehicles each day, and the new signs will serve as a visual reminder of the lasting impact Gwynn made on our community.”
