In a view to the north from along the eastbound lanes, the Archer T. Gammon Highway (US 58 Bypass) crosses the J. Lester Tramel Bridge on the Dan River, east of Danville, Virginia.
J. Lester Tramel (1895-1974) served on the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors. He and his wife Willie Anderson (1896-1993) were beloved members of their community. Their children Eva Mae Tramel Clark of Danville; the late Anderson Tramel, local game warden; and the late Dr. James L. Tramel, Professor of Agronomy at Virginia Tech, are also widely known.
