LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Henderson City Council approved renaming a street in honor of the Raiders' official move to the Las Vegas area.

Council members approved naming Executive Airport Drive to Raiders Way, as requested by the Raiders. The street will be Raiders Way from St. Rose Parkway to Volunteer Boulevard, according to team and city documents.

The move was approved on the condition that the Raiders reimburse the expenses associated with renaming the street, including the changing of street signs.

The street leads to the nearly finished Raiders practice facility in Henderson.

It wasn't clear when the street would officially be renamed. A call to a city representative wasn't immediately returned.
