Jefferson County bridge renamed in honor of Vietnam War airman


PUNXSUTAWNEY — A bridge in Jefferson County has been renamed in honor of a Punxsutawney airman who died in the Vietnam War in 1970.

The bridge which crosses over Mahoning Creek on Route 119 in Punxsutawney is now the Robert P. Pape Memorial Bridge.

The Mahoning Valley VFW Post 2076 conducted a dedication ceremony on Veterans Day featuring some of Pape’s family members, as well as State Senator Cris Dush, and State Representative Brian Smith.
