H. 4181

Introduced by Rep. Calhoon

S. Printed 5/5/21--H.

THE COMMITTEE ON

INVITATIONS AND MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS

To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4181) to request the Department of Transportation name the bridges in Lexington County that cross Horse and Hollow Creeks, etc., respectfully

REPORT:

That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:

DENNIS C. MOSS for Committee.

            

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGES IN LEXINGTON COUNTY THAT CROSS HORSE AND HOLLOW CREEKS ALONG UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 378 WESTBOUND LANE "THE TWIN BRIDGES - WEST" AND NAME THE BRIDGES THAT CROSS HOLLOW AND HORSE CREEKS ALONG UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 378 EASTBOUND LANE "THE TWIN BRIDGES - EAST" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THE APPROACHES TO EACH RESPECTIVE LOCATION CONTAINING THESE WORDS.

Whereas, during World War II, the Doolittle Raiders and other Air Corps pilots training in the Midlands called the bridges that cross Horse and Hollow Creeks along United States Highway 378 in Lexington County "The Twin Bridges"; and

Whereas, the bridges were used as landmarks and directional aides for pilots to find Bomb Island on Lake Murray during their training missions; and

Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to name the bridges in a manner that honors the legacy of these courageous World War II pilots. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the bridges in Lexington County that cross Horse and Hollow Creeks along United States Highway 378 westbound lane "The Twin Bridges - West" and name the bridges that cross Hollow and Horse Creeks along United States Highway 378 eastbound lane "The Twin Bridges - East" and erect appropriate markers or signs at the approaches to each respective location containing these words.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
