Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith a certain bridge in the city of Boston, 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:
The bridge spanning the Fort Point Channel and connecting Dorchester avenue and Albany street in the South Boston section of the city of Boston shall be designated and known as the James M. Kelly Bridge, in honor of Boston city councillor James M. Kelly of South Boston. The department of highways shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing that designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
Approved December 31, 2006.
