TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES GRIER SWAMP ALONG HIGHWAY S-26-65 IN HORRY COUNTY "OSCAR CAUSEY MEMORIAL BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Oscar Causey was born in the early 1890's in Horry County and died in 1974; and
Whereas, although Mr. Causey was not an educated man, he had a strong work ethic that he instilled in his eleven children and numerous grandchildren; and
Whereas, he worked for many years for the Public Works Division in Horry County. He supervised a bridge inmate crew that constructed wooden bridges throughout the county; and
Whereas, he took great pride in the workmanship that went into creating these structures, and had great empathy for the prisoners assigned to his crew; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the contributions that Mr. Oscar Causey made to the development of Horry County by naming a bridge in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge that crosses Grier Swamp along Highway S-26-65 in Horry County "Oscar Causey Memorial Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this bridge that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
