Ices Ferry Bridge Dedicated in Honor of Life-Long Morgantown Resident

Posted: Updated:

The Ices Ferry Bridge crossing Cheat Lake in Monongalia County was dedicated Tuesday morning as the "U. S. Army and Air National Guard Col. Garry L. Bowers - Ices Ferry Bridge."

Senators Bob Beach and Robert Williams introduced the bill to change the name.

Bowers owned WCLG radio station and was a life-long Morgantown resident who served in the Army and Air National Guard. He died in 2011.

The original 90-year-old Steel Truss Bridge was demolished in Monongalia County in September  2012. The new bridge opened in November 2012.
