|Subject:||Richard L. Shaw Memorial Bridge|
|I will soon introduce legislation designating the Interstate-376 bridge over the Ohio River in Vanport Township, Beaver County as the Richard L. Shaw Memorial Bridge.
Richard L. Shaw, who passed away December 29, 2018, lived a life of service to the Commonwealth and to the residents of Beaver County. A World War II veteran, he dedicated over sixty years to supporting and expanding the local business and civic communities. Richard L. Shaw was a leading force in the designation of Route 60 as Interstate-376, which sparked significant economic development in Beaver County.
A dedicated board of directors’ member for both the Beaver County Corporation for Economic Development and the New Brighton Area School Board, Richard L. Shaw generously donated his time to the Brighton Center for Youth, the United Way of Beaver County, the Salvation Army, the Allegheny County Airport Authority, the American Red Cross, the Boy Scouts of America, and many other civic and economic organizations.
His legacy is one of genuine care, commitment, and humble generosity – Richard L. Shaw will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB1281
