New I-140 bridge may be named after former Brunswick Co. commissioner
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A former Brunswick County commissioner may be getting some special recognition.
The county is requesting the I-140 bridge over the Cape Fear River be named in his honor.
Bill Sue served as a Brunswick County commissioner from 1994 to 2012 and was chairman for five of those years.
According to county documents, Sue began advocating for I-140, then known as the Wilmington Bypass, during his first term.
Commissioners voted unanimously to approve a resolution asking the DOT to name the I-140 bridge over the Cape Fear River in his honor.
They will also provide the $2,000 for signs.
The final decision is now up to North Carolina Department of Transportation.
