goyish minhag ?
I am asking, not saying. intuitively, as an outsider, it seems like a goyish minhag, like MLK street, etc. Is it a common honor in Jewish history, in TaNaCh, to name street's after a person of honor? if not, it seems kind of denigrating, and much less of an honor than say naming a library after a person, a shul, but just a street?

It is done all over Israel. But more importantly if you watch the video you'll hear them saying that the Rebbe said when you give something a holy name it makes the environment around it holy.

You're so right! Even the official events in Israel aren't official :) they didn't close off the streets, have the whole town invited, speakers, music etc.
They spoke very well and to the point!

Throughout Eretz Yisrael streets are named after figures from tanach, tanaaim, amoraim, rishonim and acharonim

How long?
I wonder how long it will take for the street names to be added to Google maps.

plenty of tzaddikim to name streets after
I assume they will name more streets, and after 100, there will still be some tzaddikim to name after.
