Las Vegas (FOX5)-The city of Las Vegas announced Thursday that it will ceremonially name the streets in honor of longtime traffic reporter Tom Harley.

According to a news release, Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and Councilor Cedric Clear will join Tom Harley’s family on Saturday at 9:30 am to dedicate a portion of the street to commemorate the veteran journalist.

Hurley, lovingly known as the “Chopper Tom” around the valley, died Friday after the fight against pancreatic cancer. He was 60 years old.

The city says the dedication will take place at the corner of Foremaster Lane and Bruce Street near Rancho High School, where Harley attended school.

According to the city, the street designation is ceremonial in nature and does not constitute a formal renaming of the Foremaster Lane. The release notes show that the city used ceremonial street designations to honor those who had a positive impact on the Las Vegas community.

According to the city, a ceremonial road sign labeled Tom Harley Way will also be placed on top of the official road signs for Foremaster and Las Vegas Boulevard.

The city states that UNLV graduate, Nevada Broadcasting Hall of Fame member, and Emmy Award-winning journalist Harley has reported in Las Vegas for over 30 years.
