To mark Memorial Day and as a tribute to military who died in wars, American Flags will be waved from the Sutton Road bridge over Interstate 77 in York County Monday on the national holiday.
Flags will be waved from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The bridge was named the Patriot Leonard A. Farrington Memorial Bridge in 2013 by the State of South Carolina. Farrington, a Navy veteran from Rock Hill, waved his American Flag from the bridge starting on Sept. 11, 2011, the date of the terrorist attacks, and each year afterward on the same date until he died in 2012.
