The Ben Bernanke Interchange

View Larger Map

The rural South Carolina town of Dillon has decided to dedicate Exit 190 on Interstate 95 as the Ben Bernanke interchange.

[Insert your own joke about crashes.]

Bernanke grew up in Dillon and graduated from Dillon High School. The dedication ceremony is scheduled for Saturday.

So not confuse the Ben Bernanke Interchange at Exit 190 with Exit 193, Dillon’s second and more-used I-95 exit, named after the Honorable William James “Bill” McLeod, Sr., a WWII veteran, former state representative, and retired family court judge.
