14 Escambia Road Division Employees Honored For Work During Snow Event

December 14, 2017

Over a dozen Escambia County Roads and Bridges employees spent many hours last weekend working to keep North Escambia’s bridges open during our rare snow event.

They kept county bridges sanded for safety as ice formed on them. Crews also worked to keep the dirt portion of Jakes Road passable — which is a detour for an emergency bridge closure on Nokomis Road.

On Wednesday, Escambia County District 5 Commissioner Steven Barry and Public Works Deputy Director Wes Moreno delivered 20 dozen hot doughnuts to the employees at the Escambia County Road Department in Cantonment. Special recognition was given to the 14 employees that worked throughout weekend to keep North Escambia moving during the snow and ice.

The employees honored were: Jackie Godwin, Sam Davis, Clifford Amerson, Jonathon Cardwell, Leslie Barnes and Allen Holland for their work on Jakes and Pineville Roads; and Randy Brasch, Aubrey Winslow, Mike Troche, Mike Ford, Blake Scruggs, Ernest Anderson, Adam Smith and Kenny Phillips for their work sanding bridges. Matt Avery was the supervisor on call for both events.

    Nice to hear when people have a good work ethic and think of others. Not my bridge, but I am happy for the ones who use it. Doing a good job is not something taken for granted anymore.
