Yes, honor Senn

On Wednesday this page published a plea from Wenatchee’s Anne S. White to name the interchange at the junction of Highways 97 and 2, commonly known as the Big Y, for the late Department of Transportation Regional Administrator Don Senn. It was inspiring. What better way to honor such an exemplary public servant than to place his name on a well-functioning piece of civil engineering art like the Peshastin interchange?

Highway features and bridges are often named for admired politicians or appointees, rarely or never for the leaders of public agencies responsible for their design and execution. Senn was a public employee, but so dedicated to duty, so admired by public, press and elected officials, that we are convinced his name belongs somewhere, connected with to our highways. Let’s do that.
