Providence's Service Road #7 has been re-named in honor of former Public Safety Commissioner John J. Partington.
City councilors and other public leaders were on hand for the dedication ceremony earlier this week.
Partington was the longest-serving Commissioner in the city, and also had a long career with the U.S. Marshal Service.
He passed away in 2006.
John J. Partington Way runs between Atwells Avenue and Broad Street, parallel to Interstate 95.
