Officer John David Dryer Memorial Interchange Dedication Wednesday

The interchange will be named in honor of the slain police officer on the one-year anniversary of his death.

The intersection of state Route 136 and Interstate 70 in Washington County will be dedicated as the Officer John David Dryer Memorial Interchange on Wednesday.

A special ceremony will be held on the one-year anniversary of when the East Washington Borough police officer was killed in the line of duty, state Rep. Brandon Neuman, D-North Strabane, said.

The dedication ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19 at the J. Barry Stout Park and Ride lot at the interchange of Interstate 70 and Route 136.

Neuman authored H.B. 2215, which was signed into law this summer, to name the interchange in Washington County for Dryer.

Dryer was killed and another officer wounded during a traffic stop on Interstate 70 on Dec. 19, 2011.

The public is invited to the dedication ceremony.
