DelDOT will honor a 24 year old worker who was killed in a work related accident last year.
The state Department of Transportation will rename the Ellendale Maintenance Yard after Eric Givens. The DelDOT worker was killed in October 2011. Givens was operating a lawn mower when it hit a support wire that was connected to a utility pole. As he tried to free the mower, the wire made contact with a live electrical wire, electrocuting Givens.
Members of his family along with Governor Jack Markell will be on hand for today’s renaming and dedication ceremony.
