(WBIR-Knoxville) Friends, family and officials will dedicate a Knoxville bridge to a fallen Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper at 10 a.m. Friday.
Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and members of the Knox County Commission are planning to attend the bridge dedication ceremony for Trooper Michael Slagle on Longmire Road.
Slagle died after his patrol cruiser slid off Longmire Road during an ice storm last January. He served more than 25 years with THP.
The commission and Mayor Burchett co-sponsored and passed a resolution in June to rename the Longmire Road Bridge over Flat Creek in memory of Slagle.
