The city's map website does not feature a bridge named after former Mayor David Dinkins anymore.

Last week it was discovered that the website maps.NYC.gov had mislabeled the Willis Avenue Bridge as the "David Dinkins-Willis Avenue Bridge."

The city has since corrected the mistake.

But there is a renewed push to get a city bridge named after the former mayor.

The Daily News says Bronx Councilman Fernando Cabrera has reintroduced a bill to rename the Washington Bridge connecting the Bronx and Washington Heights after Dinkins.

The bill was first introduced in 2012, but failed to even reach the voting stage.
