Gov. Corbett gets bill to name 4 York County bridges for fallen soldiers

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Pennsylvania Senate has unanimously passed legislation to rename a number of York County bridges and a roundabout in honor of four soldiers and a police officer who lost their lives in the line of duty.

House Bill 1431, authored by Rep. Seth Grove (R-York), now awaits the signature of Governor Tom Corbett, who is expected to sign the measure into law.

Under Grove's bill, the bridge on Hanover Road near the intersection with Lake Road in Spring Grove will be designated as the Corporal Luke S. Runyan Memorial Bridge.

Runyan, a 2004 graduate of Spring Grove Area High School, was 21 years old when he was killed in combat in Iraq on Feb. 17, 2008 while serving as a squad leader with the U.S. Army.

The bridge on Route 116 in Spring Grove will be renamed the Specialist Cameron J. Stambaugh Memorial Bridge.

Stambaugh, 20, a 2010 graduate of Spring Grove Area High School, was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan on July 8, 2012.

Grove's bill will name the traffic circle on Route 116 at Hanover Road and Roth's Church Road in Spring Grove as the Officer David D. Tome Memorial Circle.

Tome, 31, was a Northern York County Regional Police officer when he was struck and killed by a distracted driver in 2008.

In Dover, the bridge on State Route 4002 between Intermediate Avenue and Municipal Drive will be renamed the Specialist Zachary R. Clouser Memorial Bridge, and the bridge on Route 74 between Drawbaugh Avenue and Mill Alley will be designated as the Sergeant Brett E. Walden Memorial Bridge.

Clouser, 19, a 2005 graduate of Dover Area High School, was killed in action on July 18, 2007, while serving with the U.S. Army in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Walden, a 40-year-old Airborne Ranger instructor from Dover, was killed in action in Iraq on August 5, 2005.
