(MENA) The roadway leading into Aubrey Tapley Park in Mena now has a new name.
The roadway has been known as RECREATION LANE and on Monday morning, members of Mena City Council and family members of the late Dale Spencer, were on hand for the rededication of that lane that was renamed DALE DC SPENCER LANE.
This comes after council approved at their May Council meeting to rename the roadway after longtime area resident and engineer whom provided a lot of guidance and assistance on area projects.
Spencer passed away earlier this year and formerly worked for the Arkansas Highway Department and was the architect for the Talimena Scenic Byway, that starts in downtown Mena.
