Portion Of I-71 To Be Named For Fallen Worker

Aug 16, 2013

A portion of I-71 in Delaware County will be named to honor a state transportation worker killed in a construction zone accident last April.

Ohio Department of Transportation officials say it will be called the Lee Rizor Memorial Highway. Rizor was hit by a tractor-trailer in a construction zone. ODOT officials are also hoping to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.
