MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Bud Grant Way is now a formally recognized street in Minneapolis, just to the south of the under-construction Minnesota Vikings stadium.

The sign was posted at a ceremony Monday featuring Grant, the former Vikings coach who guided the team to four Super Bowls and Pro Football Hall of Fame member. Grant was joined by dozens of his family members, city officials, Vikings executives and former players.

The street in his name is a one-block section of 9th Avenue, between 6th and 7th streets. This was known as Carew Drive while the Metrodome was there, in honor of former Minnesota Twins star Rod Carew. With the baseball team now playing at Target Field, Carew Drive was moved to the west edge of downtown.

The new Vikings stadium will open in 2016.
