KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A one-lane bridge in Knox County is being dedicated to the memory of a man who worked to preserve it.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett’s office says officials will formally dedicate the bridge on Coward Mill Road over Beaver Creek in memory of the late Donald Caldwell during a ceremony Tuesday.

Members of Caldwell’s family are expected at the ceremony near the bridge.

The mayor’s office says Caldwell and others organized an effort in the late 1980s to preserve the historic bridge, one of only five in the state. It remains in use.

Caldwell also helped with the effort to plant daffodils and redbud trees along Pellissippi Parkway.

Caldwell was an Air Force veteran, serving in the Korean War, and worked for the Knoxville Utilities Board. He died last year.
