Proposal to rename Autopista del Coral to honor Oscar de la Renta
La Altagracia province senator Amable Aristy Castro took up El Nacional newspaper’s suggestion in a Thursday, 23 October 2014 editorial to rename the Autopista El Coral after late Dominican fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta. Aristy Castro said that the city government of Higuey (his daughter is the mayor) and the Veron-Bavaro-Punta Cana municipal district were working to issue a joint resolution proposing the name change to Congress.
De la Renta is known for his contributions to the international fashion world, but he always kept close to his country of birth. In the east he is known for his contributions to the decoration at Casa de Campo and Punta Cana Resort & Club (Tortuga Bay and Los Corales) where he had two homes.
