TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE OVERPASS LOCATED ALONG LAFAYETTE DRIVE IN THE CITY OF SUMTER "SCHP PATROLMAN JIMMY A. TRAYLOR MEMORIAL BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, on December 25, 1970, Patrolman Jimmy A. Traylor, a native of Fairfield County, was on duty in Sumter County when he was called to assist another patrolman with an arrest; and
Whereas, during this incident, two individuals assaulted both patrolmen. Patrolman Traylor died from gunshot wounds received during the assault, while the other patrolman was wounded. The two individuals along with another person were charged in the assault; and
Whereas, left to mourn his death were his wife, Carolyn and their children, Tracy and Nancy; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to memorialize Patrolman Traylor by having an overpass in the City of Sumter named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the overpass located along Lafayette Drive in the City of Sumter "SCHP Patrolman Jimmy A. Traylor Memorial Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
