Legislature Approves Naming Part Of Hwy 4 The “Sen. Greg Evers Memorial Highway”

March 12, 2018

The Florida Legislature has passed a bill naming a stretch of road in Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties as “Senator Greg Evers Memorial Highway.” Evers, 62, died  last summer in a single-vehicle accident near his home in Okaloosa County.

The bill provides the memorial designation to part of State Road 4 between Munson Highway and State Road 189 in Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties.

Evers, a Republican, served nine years in the Florida House before his election to the Senate in 2010. Evers left his Senate seat in 2016 to make a bid for the U.S. House but lost the Republican primary to U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz.
