'Rat Pack' Members Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra at a Fundraiser in Santa Monica, California May 22, 1978
Rat Pack to be reunited when Industrial renamed Sammy Davis Jr. Drive
Written by Matt Guillermo.
LAS VEGAS - Clark County is preparing to reunite the Rat Pack as a planned street renaming takes place on Tuesday.
In July, the county's Board of Commissioners approved to fund the remaining proceeds needed to rename a 1.8-mile stretch of Industrial Road after Sammy Davis Jr.
According to the county, street signs on Industrial Road south of Sahara Avenue will be replaced with the Rat Packers' name. Industrial is located just west of the Las Vegas Strip.
The renaming was already approved several years ago, the county said. At the time, though, the party pushing for the renaming could not raise sufficient private funds to change out the signs.
Sammy Davis Jr. Drive will intersect with existing roadways that are named after Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
A dedication ceremony is set for Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the point where all three Rat Pack streets intersect. Davis' family, county commissioners and Josh Elliott, who advocated the change, will be on hand.
"I am so happy to see my father reunited in the town we have loved with his best friends," said Tracey Davis, the performer's daughter. "I am sure Uncles Frank and Dean along with my legendary father are smiling right now."
In all, 11 signs will be replaced with a majority to be changed within a day of the dedication.
