The 192nd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT DESIGNATING A CERTAIN BRIDGE IN THE TOWN OF SANDWICH AS THE COMMANDER FRANCIS T. WILLIAMS AND SANDWICH VETERANS 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 Sandwich as the Commander Francis T. Williams and Sandwich Veterans Memorial Bridge, 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 S-04-001 (4A4) on state highway route 6A in the town of Sandwich, spanning Scorton creek shall be designated and known as the Commander Francis T. Williams and Sandwich Veterans Memorial Bridge, in recognition of Commander Francis T. Williams, a beloved resident of Sandwich, who served as a commander in the United States Navy and lost his life on February 25, 2013 while on active duty. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain a suitable marker bearing the designation in compliance with the standards of the department.

Approved, October 23, 2020.
