Do Secretary’s Orders 3404 and 3405 affect street names or street signs?

No. The names of cultural or man-made features, such as roads, streets, shopping centers, churches, schools, hospitals and airports are not under the Board on Geographic Names’ (BGN’s) purview. The naming and renaming of these entities are the responsibility of the agency or office that manages them.
