PACOIMA >> Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, D-Pacoima, introduced a bill Wednesday to name a portion of Interstate 5 after San Fernando Valley native son and rock ‘n’ roll legend Ritchie Valens.

Bocanegra’s ACR 23 calls for the portion of Interstate 5 between the 170 and 118 freeways to be renamed “The Ritchie Valens Memorial Highway” in honor of the late rocker, who is most famous for his hit “La Bamba.”
