HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 33

(By Delegates Householder, Linville, and Maynard)

[Introduced March 9, 2021]

 

Requesting the Division of Highways name bridge number 02-7-5.94 (02A015), locally known as Elk Branch Bridge, carrying County Route 7 over Elk Branch in Berkeley County, the “Norman A. and Carrie G. Silver Memorial Bridge”.

Whereas, Norman A. Silver was born in 1913, married his childhood sweetheart, Carrie G. Shriver, and together they had 13 children. Norman and Carrie Silver farmed over 1,800 acres of land and, with their children, operated a local sawmill; and

Whereas, Mr. and Mrs. Silver were  long-time residents of Berkeley County, dedicating their lives to the ministry, and donating land for churches and rescue missions. They also donated land to the State of West Virginia on Back Creek Valley Road in Hedgesville, West Virginia, to make the road and bridge safer, turning it from a one lane to a two-lane bridge; and

Whereas, It is fitting that an enduring memorial be established to commemorate Norman A. and Carrie G. Silver for their service to their ministry, their community and the State of West Virginia; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name bridge number 02-7-5.94 (02A015), locally known as Elk Branch Bridge, carrying County Route 7 over Elk Branch in Berkeley County, the “Norman A. and Carrie G. Silver Memorial Bridge”; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to have made and erect signs at both ends of the bridge containing bold and prominent letters proclaiming the bridge the “Norman A. and Carrie G. Silver Memorial Bridge”; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a copy of this resolution to the Commissioner of the Division of Highways.
