Substituted by the House, on motion of Mr. Speliotis of Danvers, for a bill with the same title (House, No. 3797).  September 13, 2017.


The Commonwealth of Massachusetts



In the One Hundred and Ninetieth General Court



An Act designating a certain bridge as the Trooper Thomas L. Clardy Memorial Bridge.


Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith a certain bridge in the town of Sturbridge, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

Bridge number S-30-047 on Route 49 over the Massachusetts Turnpike in the town of Sturbridge, shall be designated and known as the Trooper Thomas L. Clardy Memorial Bridge, in honor of Trooper Thomas L. Clardy.  The division of highways of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing this designation in compliance with the standards of the department that recognize the “Trooper Thomas L. Clardy Memorial Bridge” and state “The Commonwealth recognizes Marine Veteran and Massachusetts State Trooper Thomas L. Clardy, killed in the line of duty on Wednesday March 16, 2016.”
