Because “the bridge was opened to the public significantly ahead of schedule and with no injuries or safety issues,” the Red Creek Bridge Recovery Project Team was presented with the 2022 Chief’s Honor Award in the category of “Deliver Benefits to the Public.” The team of staff from the Monongahela National Forest, the Forest Service’s Eastern Regional Office, and the West Virginia Division of Highways were presented with the award by Forest Service Chief Randy Moore during a ceremony.
“I’m proud of these employees and their dedicated work to ensure the safe and timely installation of the replacement bridge,” said Forest Supervisor Shawn Cochran. “It’s always rewarding to work with folks across agencies and from other offices, and I’m grateful for the assistance of the West Virginia Division of Highways and staff from the Forest Service’s Eastern Region.”
