LAS VEGAS (AP) - Frank, Sammy and Dean are together again.

Officials have renamed a street near the Las Vegas Strip for Sammy Davis Jr.

Naturally, a dedication ceremony Tuesday was held at the three-way intersection where Sammy Davis Jr. Drive, Frank Sinatra Drive and Dean Martin Drive meet.

Davis family members including his son, Manny Davis, joined Clark County commission members and local entertainers for the event on what used to be called Industrial Road, just west of the Strip.

County spokesman Erik Pappa says Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani (joon-kihl-ee-AH’-nee) called it fitting to honor the trio of Rat Pack members who helped put Las Vegas on the map in the 1960s.

Davis died in 1990, Martin in 1995 and Sinatra in 1998.

Frank Sinatra Drive was finished in 2004, and Dean Martin Drive was named in 2005.
