marquette interchange

Did you know…?
A Jesuit named the Marquette Interchange. In April 1968, Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Marquette University’s 20th president, sought a new name for what was originally called the Central Interchange. Father Raynor suggested naming the interchange after nearby Marquette University. His idea worked. The renamed Marquette Interchange opened to traffic on December 23, 1968.
