PLANT CITY Thonotosassa Road may take a confusing path through the city but commissioners have nixed the idea of a new name for a portion of the roadway.
Three different road segments in the city are named Thonotosassa, much to the dismay of motorists unfamiliar with the jogs in the road. Commissioners considered renaming the segment of Thonotosassa from Mobley Street to the apex at Reynolds Street.
The commissioners put the idea to rest at their Nov. 12 meeting. The majority of the commissioners said there hadn’t been an outpouring of public support for a new name.
“I don’t see a real need for a change,” Commissioner Billy Keel said.
