Austin's longtime Robert E. Lee Road is no more.  The signs have officially be changed to its new name: Azie Morton Road, named after the first African-American treasury secretary Azie Taylor Morton.  Jeff Davis Avenue will soon be changed as well, although it's never been certain that street was named specifically for the former Confederate president.
