The family of Subrina Knight, the local nurse who lost her life in a July 12 car crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 287 Bypass and Ensign Road, is leading a grassroots effort to prevent similar deaths in the future.
Tisha McElyea, Knight’s sister, is collecting signatures for a petition asking state transportation officials to expedite a solution to the treacherous traffic conditions which plague the U.S. 287 bypass.
“We are working hard for this bridge,” McElyea said. “It’s been way too long. They have not taken care of what they need to take care of.”
