The initial construction of Huaihai Road was started in 1900 and completed in the next year 1901, after which the previous two roads of Xi Jiang Road and Bao Chang Road were joined together into one thoroughfare with the name Bao Chang Road in commemoration of the head of the administration of the French Concession at the time. In 1915, Bao Chang Road was renamed Joffre Road by the administration of the French Concession at the time to commemorate the remarkable French general - Joseph Joffre. In May 1950, the road was officially named Huaihai Road to commemorate the decisive victory of the People's Liberation Army of China in the Huaihai Battle which was engaged between the armies of China's two parties from November 6th, 1948 to January 10th, 1949.
