Memorial Grove Decorated with Lights for the Holidays

December 1999

In memory of the FHWA folks who lost their lives in the line of duty during the Oklahoma City bomb explosion in April 1995, FHWA's Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center employees decorated the grove of 11 redbud trees with lights for the holiday season. The grove was planted in October of 1995 in a memorial service led by then-FHWA Administrator Rodney Slater.
