Residents of a certain 0.3-mile long road in the Olympic Heights subdivision of Austin, Texas have noticed visitors stopping to take photos of their street sign lately. That’s because they live on Bruce Jenner Lane, one of many roads named after Olympic athletes in the neighborhood—a name that now seems out of date since the celebrity’s debut as Caitlyn Jenner.
“Should we put both [names] there? Tape one underneath it?” one resident remarked to local ABC affiliate KVUE. “I thought about doing it myself.”
Though residents support Caitlyn’s transition, some say they would prefer not to have to change their address on public records.
Austin will not be alone in having to make a decision on renaming: There is another Bruce Jenner Lane in El Paso, and a Bruce Jenner Drive in Clarksville, Tenn.
