Chapter 160 AN ACT RELATIVE TO CERTAIN DESIGNATIONS IN THE TOWNS OF NORTHBRIDGE, UXBRIDGE, AND DUDLEY

     Whereas,  The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate certain Massachusetts Department of Transportation sites as memorials in honor of certain fallen soldiers of the United States Armed Forces, 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:
     SECTION 1.  Bridge N-21-004 on Douglas road spanning the Mumford river in the town of Northbridge shall be designated and known as the Corporal Thomas S. Perron, USMC, Memorial Bridge in honor of Corporal Thomas S. Perron, United States Marine Corps, who was killed in action in Beirut, Lebanon on October 23, 1983.  The division of highways of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing the designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
     SECTION 2.  The intersection of state highway route 122 and Hartford avenue in the town of Uxbridge shall be designated as the Private Edward Sullivan Memorial Square, in honor of Private Edward Sullivan, United States Marine Corps, Recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, 1898.  The Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing that designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
     SECTION 3.  Bridge #D12026-1XX on state highway route 131 over the Quinebaug river in the town of Dudley shall be designated as the Private First Class Ranger Christopher P. Dona Memorial Bridge in honor of Private Christopher Dona, United States Army, who was killed in a tragic parachuting accident June 13, 2013 at Fort Stewart-Hunter Airfield Base.  The Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing that designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
