To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1216), to request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the double bridge on State Highway 24, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE DOUBLE BRIDGE ON STATE HIGHWAY 24 IN ANDERSON COUNTY AS THE CALVIN WESLEY BELCHER BRIDGE.
Whereas, Calvin Wesley Belcher of Anderson served as Resident Maintenance Engineer of the Department of Highways and Public Transportation in Anderson County; and
Whereas, Mr. Belcher worked for the department for forty-five years supervising all roads built in Anderson County between 1921 and 1966; and
Whereas, when Mr. Belcher began his work with the department as a foreman, the principal form of transportation was the horse and buggy; and
Whereas, Mr. Belcher has done more for Anderson County's road system than any other person; and
Whereas, Mr. Belcher at ninety-two years old gave nearly half of his life to making highways and bridges in Anderson County top quality and safe; and
Whereas, it is appropriate that this distinguished career in public service be commemorated by a bridge named after this gentleman. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to designate and name the double bridge on State Highway 24 in Anderson County as the Calvin Wesley Belcher Bridge.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation, Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Wesley Belcher, their daughters and granddaughters.
