Jimmy A. Arevalo Memorial Higway

(Dedication Ceremony for Jimmy A. Arevalo)….A portion of Interstate 8 was dedicated to him.

The ceremony was held Saturday on Westbound I-8, by the Tavern Road Exit, near Alpine. In 2012, Arevalo, a very popular Imperial Valley teacher, was killed in a tragic accident along I-8. He had pulled over to assist another driver on the side of the road, when both were struck and killed by a drunk driver. The ceremony was attended by Assembly members Manuel Perez of the 56th District and Brian Jones of the 76th District, along with family and friends. During the ceremony the Jimmy A. Arevalo Memorial Highway sign was unveiled.
