Late Flyers owner Ed Snider will be honored with a street in his name.

The City of Philadelphia is set to rename a portion of 11th Street in South Philadelphia after Snider. It will be called Ed Snider Way, and it will carry that name on the portion of 11th Street between Pattison Avenue and “Terminal Avenue”, which is the technical name of the creepy part of 11th that runs under I-95.

Here’s how this will look on a map:

It’s the portion of 11th Street right in between the Wells Fargo Center and Lincoln Financial Field. The dedication ceremony will reportedly take place Thursday.
