 Governor Tomblin Dedicates New West Virginia State Police Detachment

8/12/2013
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Gov. Tomblin today joined members of the West Virginia Parkways Authority and West Virginia State Police to dedicate the new Troop 7 Detachment serving the West Virginia Turnpike at Exit 95 in honor of the late Cameron "Cam" Lewis.

"I believe we all know how Cam felt about our Troopers and their needs. A long-time transportation safety advocate, Cam knew this building was necessary and he did everything within his power to make this project a reality," Gov. Tomblin said. "To Cam this was more than an office along an 88-mile highway. Cam grew up when the Turnpike was being built. If you had the honor to speak with him about it, chances are Cam told you about the days of his youth, when he and his buddies would ride their bikes to watch construction crews as they built the Turnpike. It was here, his love of transportation began."

A more than 20 year veteran of the state Department of Transportation and advocate for traffic enforcement, Lewis held a variety of leadership roles during his tenure on the Parkway's Authority Board of Directors including serving as vice chairman, chairman of the facilities committee, and member of the finance committee.

The Daniels, W.Va. native passed away this spring, prior to the completion of the Troop 7 detachment. A commemorative plaque is on display in his honor.
