FRANKFORT (AP) - A stretch of road in northern Kentucky has been named for former Miss America Heather French Henry.

Gov. Steve Beshear joined other officials on Thursday to dedicate the U.S. 68 Maysville Southern Loop in honor of Henry, a Maysville native.

The new four-mile loop formally opened in February. The stretch is already being credited with easing traffic congestion.

Henry was crowned the 2000 Miss America. She has been known as a strong advocate for veterans' issues, including homelessness, housing and health care. She's also written numerous children's books covering various educational topics.

Henry lives in Louisville with her husband, former Kentucky Lt. Gov. Steve Henry, and their two daughters.
