A portion of Olive Street becomes ‘Nowitzki Way’ this week

On Wednesday, October 30 the city of Dallas, in partnership with The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Dallas Mavericks, will host a street naming ceremony to unveil the new “Nowitzki Way.”  In September, the Dallas City Council unanimously approved the renaming of Olive Street, between North Field Street and Victory Avenue, to Nowitzki Way. Nowitzki calls it a huge honor, saying, “This city has given me much more than I could have ever imagined, and I will forever be grateful,” he says.
