GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Senator Josh Penry paid tribute to a fallen Grand Junction soldier on the last day of the legislative session, and a portion of I–70 will be renamed for Cpl. Wade Oglesby who was killed by a roadside bomb in 2007.
Signage will designate the first 10 miles of I–70 on this side of the Utah border as the Wade Oglesby Citizen Hero Memorial Highway.
However, the signs will be paid for with gifts, grants and donations.
If you’d like to help get those signs up, you can contact Grand Valley Blue Star Mothers for more information.
