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.
