Chiefs great Dawson has bridge dedicated to him
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A bridge near Arrowhead Stadium is being dedicated to former Kansas City Chiefs great Len Dawson.
The Kansas City Star reports that the Missouri Department of Transportation unveiled the sign Friday that will be posted in front of the bridge on East Stadium Drive over Interstate 435.
The 79-year old broadcaster and NFL Hall of Famer joined the Chiefs' franchise in 1962. Over the next 14 seasons, he directed the team to three AFL Championships, two Super Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl victory.
A MODOT program allows certain individuals, events, places or organizations to be honored on Missouri's state highway system.
