Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, along with members of the Knox County Commission, joined family, friends and colleagues of Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Slagle to dedicate a bridge in his memory on Friday, August 23.

Trooper Slagle died of natural causes after his patrol cruiser slid off of Longmire Road during last January’s ice storm.  Trooper Slagle served more than 25 years with the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

In June, Knox County Commission joined Mayor Burchett in co-sponsoring and passing a resolution renaming the Longmire Road Bridge over Flat Creek in memory of Trooper Slagle.
