SPRING GROVE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York County bridge has been renamed in honor of a Spring Grove soldier who was killed while serving in Afghanistan.

The bridge on Route 116 in Spring Grove was dedicated Tuesday as the Specialist Cameron J. Stambaugh Memorial Bridge.

Stambaugh, a 2010 graduate of Spring Grove Area High School, was 20 years old when he was killed in action July 8, 2012 by a roadside bomb.

"Cameron crossed it every day to go to school and I cross it every day to go to work," father Mitchell Stambaugh said after a dedication ceremony. "Tomorrow's going to take on a whole new meaning, when I cross it tomorrow morning."

Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) authored a bill to rename the bridge in honor of Stambaugh. House Bill 1431 was signed into law May 14.

Grove's bill also designates the bridge on Hanover Road near the intersection with Lake Road in Spring Grove 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 bill also renames the traffic circle on Route 116 at Hanover Road and Roth's Church Road in Spring Grove 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.
