CHICAGO (CBS) – Only about an hour into Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s term, the signs on the Chicago Skyway were being replaced with his name.

SLIDESHOW: Mayor Emanuel’s Inaugural

WBBM Newsradio 780 reports Chicago Skyway officials replaced the overhead sign that drivers encounter upon entering the city from Indiana. It now reads, “Rahm Emanuel, Mayor,” replacing “Richard M. Daley,” mayor.

Chicago Department of Transportation officials said they had heard signs were also being changed at Midway and O’Hare international airports.

Emanuel was sworn in around 11:25 a.m. Monday.
