UNIVERSITY PARK (March 7, 2013)--Sections of two streets on the Southern Methodist University campus near the George W. Bush Presidential Center will share the name Bush Avenue, after a vote by the University Park City Council on Wednesday.

The change affects parts of Airline Road and Dublin Street.

SMU officials say the renaming will also help emergency responders find specific locations after new sophomore dormitory space opens in 2014 along the two streets.

Bush's presidential library opens to the public May 1.
