From his untimely and yet unforgettably unfortunate death by shooting in February 2012 the circumstances surrounding the teenager’s death has been nothing short of disturbing as justice has been demanding in more ways than not for his killer.

After almost nine years of his death, a reward in form of Avenue renaming is now about to take place in Miami.

Miami Dade County Commissioners voted Tuesday to rename a portion of Northeast 16th Avenue as Trayvor Martin Avenuein honour of the 17 year old who was fatally shot in February 2012.

The commissioner Audrey Edmondson confirmed. The portion of Northeast 16th Avenue will be renamed runs from Ives Dairy Road to Northeast 209th Street .

This clearly doesn’t give the justice family and friends long for, but a legacy and a constant remind of his name will be the work of the street about to bear his name for a significant time of life.
