Gaines Township bridge will be named the SFC William Boyle Memorial Bridge

Gaines Township bridge will be named the SFC William Boyle Memorial Bridge

Legislation I authored to honor the supreme sacrifice given by SFC William Boyle, formerly a resident of Watrous, was signed into law this week. 

Under the new law, the bridge on Elk Run Road over Pine Creek in Gaines Township will be named the SFC William Boyle Memorial Bridge. Boyle attended Galeton High School and served in the United States Army as an E7 with the MACV-SOG, 5th Special Forces Group in Vietnam. He was bravely serving his country when he was killed in action on Feb. 28, 1970, when an enemy rocket hit his helicopter. 

PennDOT will be responsible for erecting and maintaining appropriate signs at each end of the bridge displaying the designation.
