Naming highways, bridges, interchanges, and other transportation facilities; cost of signage. Provides that for highways, bridges, interchanges, and other transportation facilities named after a state official killed during the performance of his official duties, including State Police officers and state highway transportation workers, the costs of producing, placing, and maintaining naming signage shall be paid for from Commonwealth Transportation Funds. The bill requires that such a naming be requested by the head of the state agency by which the state official was employed. Current law requires the locality in which the highway, bridge, interchange, or other transportation facility is located to pay such costs and request such naming. Read the Bill »
