    The newly unveiled Martin Luther King Jr. Drive sign sits below the Maine Avenue S.W. sign at the corner of Maine Avenue and 14th Street S.W. on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2011, the day that this part of Maine Avenue was officially renamed. The road will continue along the Southwest Freeway and join up with the other part of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Southeast. The sign is unusual in that it has a likeness of Dr. King on it.
