Published Monday, March 12, 2012
ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) - North Carolina's Department of Transportation policy doesn't allow for firefighters or emergency responders who die on the job to have state-owned roads or bridges named after them. This is different from law enforcement officers dying in the line of duty, who can have bridges and roads named after them. In this case, Asheville wanted to rename the bridge on Interstate 240 that goes over the French Broad River in Bowen's honor. Bellamy says, "Jeff was going to be remembered on a bridge he traveled every day to work, and one that he saved lives on."
