The City of Coralville issued a proclamation, at their March 10, 2009 meeting, co-naming First Avenue (between I-80 and Hwy 6) in Coralville as Hayden Fry Way.
Hayden Fry Way/First Avenue is the most heavily traveled stretch of road in Johnson County and serves as the gateway for Kinnick bound Iowa football fans. It is also the stretch of road Hayden took every day for 20 years to his office.
Hayden Fry Way will be unveiled publicly at a special ceremony with Coach Fry on September 4, 2009 at 10:00AM. Hayden celebrated his 80th birthday this year and 2009 marks the 10th Anniversary of his retirement as Iowa’s winningest football coach.
This ceremonial addition will have no impact on First Avenue business addresses.
