Lawmakers name bridge, roadway after two slain teens
The California Legislature has approved naming a bridge on State Highway Route 15 and a stretch of State Highway Route 78 to memorialize slain teenagers Chelsea King and Amber Dubois, who were sexually assaulted and murdered after being kidnapped.
A bridge on State Highway Route 15 over Lake Hodges near where the body of Chelsea King, a 17-year-old Poway High School student who was found Feb. 25, 2010, after she disappeared during a run in Rancho Bernardo Park, will be named the Chelsea King Memorial Bridge.
The legislation also designates the portion of State Highway Route 78 between Old Milky Way and West Zoo Road alongside the San Diego Zoo Safari Park as the Amber Dubois Memorial Highway. Amber lived in Escondido.
John Gardner, a registered sex offender who raped and murdered both teens, is serving two consecutive life sentence terms in prison.
