BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) - Friends, family members and colleagues gathered Wednesday in Berrien County to honor and remember Kevin White.

Background: Stretch of I-94 renamed after late MDOT employee

A portion of I-94 was dedicated to White, a Michigan Department of Transportation employee who died in 2019 while cleaning debris from the freeway. MDOT said he was struck by a tire that had come loose from a passing semi truck.

White served as a Benton Township Trustee from 2012-15, was appointed township supervisor in 2015, and then elected as supervisor in 2016.
