Part of South Jersey highway renamed for Purple Heart recipients

    Purple Heart recipients are in for some more recognition now that part of a well-traveled South Jersey highway has been renamed for them.

    Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno was in Gloucester Township yesterday to sign a law renaming a 14.2-mile stretch of Rt. 42 “Purple Heart Memorial Highway.”

    Patch reports Sicklerville resident Chuck Byers got credit from Guadagno for pushing the bill forward in honor of American service members wounded or killed fighting for their country.
