Rep. Cleon Turner proposes renaming Rt 6 interchange for injured trooper
YARMOUTH - Mass State Rep. Cleon Turner has suggested naming the interchange off Exit 7 on the westbound side of Route 6 the "State Trooper Ellen Engelhardt Interchange."  "From all I'm told, she did a great job there, and this seems a fitting tribute," Turner said. "There aren't a lot of interchanges named after people. Bridges, yes, but naming an interchange is more unusual."   See the complete report here
