This tribute says “TAE” and was on I-94 Eastbound Mile Marker 34 in Benton Harbor, MI.
This could perhaps be for Andre Machado who was killed while walking on I-94 on January 7, 2019. I cannot be sure though as those initials do not line up with the markings on the tribute site.

There was another accident on April 28, 2017 at mile marker 37 per this news article: https://fox17online.com/2017/04/28/eb-i-94-at-i-196-in-berrien-county-shutdown-due-to-a-crash/
I have a passion for eliminating roadway accidents after having seen so much pain and suffering caused by them around the world. My background is in mechanical engineering where I began my career with Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan working in Body Engineering. I remember the first test crash I watched and how sick my stomach felt when the car crashed into the concrete wall. This memory is forever "cemented" into my mind. As an aircraft pilot I was always focused upon safety procedures, and this way of thinking has made its way into my research into automotive safety. In a desire to end traffic accidents I created this Roadside Tribute site and manage a sister site RoadsideMemorialTributes.com web sites. I also created and manage the Christians for Christ Ministries https://www.christiansforchrist.org web site. My daytime job is to manage and implement the digital marketing programs for User Friendly Consulting, Inc.
