Bourne, Pucino Bridges Sign, September 14, 2012MassDOT Highway Division Administrator Frank DePaola today joined Senate President Therese Murray along with state and local officials and family members in Bourne for the dedication of the Staff Sergeant Matthew A. Pucino Bridges. 

Governor Deval Patrick in July signed legislation designating the bridges in honor of Staff Sergeant Pucino, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2009 when his mounted patrol unit was attacked with an IED.

“MassDOT is pleased to do its part in honoring Staff Sergeant Pucino and commemorating his service with the naming of these bridges,” said MassDOT Highway Division Administrator DePaola.

MassDOT created markers bearing the new designation of the Sagamore overpasses spanning U.S. Route 6 that cross over Meetinghouse Lane and the Scenic Highway.
