Part of Newark's Elkton Road now has a new name--South Main Street.

Newark City Council decided back in June to re-name the portion of Elkton Road between West Main Street and West Park Place effective New Year's Day, saying Elkton Road has been part of downtown Newark since Council expanded downtown's boundaries in 2007.

Council members believe the name change will foster growth by associating Elkton Road with Newark's downtown section.

Affected businesses and residents were told of the change in September, and DELDOT has completed changing road signs along the re-named road.

A ceremony recognizing the name change is set for Friday morning in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings at 100 South Main Street.
