2 upstate New York highways named for fallen troopers

July 25, 2019

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Portions of two upstate New York highways are being renamed to honor state troopers killed in the line of duty.

A bill signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo Wednesday names bridges on Interstate 86 in the Steuben County town of Bath in honor of 29-year-old Trooper Nicholas Clark. He was shot and killed last July while responding to reports of a suicidal man.

Another bill signed by Cuomo renames a portion of Route 5S in the Montgomery County town of Glen in honor of Sgt. Jeremy VanNostrand. The 36-year-old trooper died in a motor vehicle accident last November outside the barracks where he was stationed in Glen.
