Causeway (Caw's Way)

I am proposing the causeway connecting mainland Newport and Goat Island be named Caw's Way for the duration of MLA's 77th Annual Meeting. This will not be the only name for it, of course, but it should be one of the names. I was met with confusion when driving down America's Cup Avenue trying to find a sign for the Goat Island Connector Road (as Google Maps had indicated the street was named) back in October when I arrived for the NEMLA meeting. I don't remember what it was called, but it wasn't Goat Island Connector Road. The map the Hyatt Regency Newport gave us says Goat Island Connector, which also appears on the Newport Cybermap. Call it what you will--I will call it Caw's Way.
