CAMBRIDGE — A stretch of Route 22 will be formally dedicated to the memory of the late Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell during a ceremony on Wednesday, and the public is invited.
The unveiling of a sign that denotes the highway dedication will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday across from the Cambridge Village offices, which also houses the Cambridge-Greenwich Police Department.
Bell died from a heart attack in March at the age of 64, ending a nearly 40-year law enforcement career in Washington County, much of it in the villages of Cambridge and Greenwich.
State legislation to designate a portion of the highway in Bell's honor was sponsored by state Assemblyman Jake Ashby, R-Castleton, and senators Elizabeth Little, R-Queensbury, and Kathleen Marchione, R-Halfmoon, and signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in August.
