HARRISBURG – A bridge in Greenfield Township, Blair County, will be named for Bryan T. “Chipper” Chamberlain, a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation equipment operator who died in 2018 while in a work zone, according to Rep. Jim Gregory (R-Blair), who introduced legislation to name the bridge.
Gregory met with Chamberlain’s parents, Gary and Linda Chamberlain, and shed a few tears as they talked about their only son.
“I’m thankful we could pass House Bill 2073
to name the bridge on Dunnings Highway for Chipper. He was dedicated and in service to the Commonwealth when he was tragically killed at age 30,” Gregory said. “I’m pleased and honored to do this for the Chamberlains.”
A graduate of Claysburg-Kimmel High School, Chamberlain greatly enjoyed outdoor recreation, including hunting and fishing. Machinery fatally injured him while on a job site in Frankstown Township.
House Bill 2073 passed on a unanimous vote today. It names the bridge over South Poplar Run as the Bryan T. “Chipper” Chamberlain Memorial Bridge.
