American Legion requests help with highway markers
ARLEE -—The American Legion Post 113 is requesting help from family members and or persons with knowledge of those who have died in traffic accidents along Highway 93 from the “Y” to Ravalli.
When the highway was rebuilt, all the markers were taken down and not replaced, as it in essence is a new highway. When questioned as to locations of the old markers, we were told that no records were kept. We are asking for help from those people who know where their family members died along the highway.
It is not required that new markers be replaced, but we will be replacing those that the family requests to be replaced.
If you or your family wants a marker to be replaced, please call the numbers in Arlee and we will get in contact with you to get the necessary information. William Orr 406-726-3798 or Carmen McClure 406-544-3722
