One concern is that the current bridge on Dorsey Drive that spans the Golden Center Freeway is already named in honor a Vietnam era soldier, Thomas Cranford.
The plan is to not change the name of the bridge itself but to include all elements of the interchange in Steven’s memorial.

The council approved public works moving forward knowing that it will take some time to move through the entire process and make sure all stakeholders are included in the decision making process.
