03 - 19 - 2014 Harris Bill Honoring Juniata County Veterans Passes House
A well known Juniata Co. bridge is one step closer to being renamed to honor area veterans thanks to legislation authored by Rep. Adam Harris. His House Bill would designate the recently completed bridge over the Juniata River on State Rt. 35 in Mifflintown as the Juniata County Veterans Memorial Bridge. The legislation unanimously passed the House, and will soon face a vote in the Senate. Harris said, "I believe it would be appropriate to designate this bridge as the Juniata County Veterans Memorial Bridge, and I appreciate my colleagues in the House supporting this legislation.â A bridge dedication ceremony is tentatively planned for Memorial Day with additional details to follow upon the passage of the bill.
