Bridge Dedicated in Honor of Floyd County native

Earlier this year, Kentucky's General Assembly unanimously approved a new name for a Floyd County bridge.

Now, the construction at mile point 13.6 on Highway 680 near Harold will memorialize Leo Roberts, a Korean War Veteran and former schoolteacher and minister.

State and county officials were on hand Saturday afternoon for the dedication ceremony.

Family members say they believe Leo would be humbled by the dedication, and proud of what the roadway represents.

Roberts died in 2002 from a car accident.
