Skagit River Bridge to be renamed for trooper

The Associated Press

The Washington State Transportation Commission voted Tuesday to rename the Skagit River Bridge for State Patrol Trooper Sean M. O’Connell Jr., who died nearby in an accident while directing traffic through detours set up after the bridge collapsed.

During its meeting in Seattle, the Transportation Commission voted to rename the bridge the Trooper Sean M. O’Connell Jr. Memorial Bridge.

The change was requested by lawmakers from the 40th legislative district, as well as the chief of the State Patrol and local and state government officials.

Transportation Commission Chairman Dan O’Neal says the decision was unanimous and enthusiastic.
