WATERTOWN-OAKVILLE

State Rep. Joe Polletta, R-68, joined by VFW 7330 Past Commander Richard DiFederico, testified before the Town Council at its September 22 meeting. The Council unanimously approved the naming of the new foot bridge along the Steele Brook Greenway as the Korean War Memorial Bridge. A plaque will soon be placed for an official dedication. Council Vice Chair Jonathan Ramsay made the motion and it was seconded by council member Lou Razza. “On behalf of all those who fought in the Korean War, we want to thank the council and Joe Polletta for seeing this through” said Mr. DiFederico.

The bridge connects Main Street with the newly constructed foot trail. The trail runs from Oakville and follows the path of Main Street, and is part of a larger plan to connect other towns and greenways as they are built. “This is an historic night as we are honoring those who served us honorably during the forgotten war. They will be forgotten no more.” Rep. Polletta added.
