Viaduct being renamed for slain Girard police officer


The Girard-McDonald viaduct will be renamed for slain Girard police officer Justin Leo.

A resolution for the change was passed unanimously Monday by city council.

Leo was shot and killed on Oct. 21, 2017, while responding to a domestic violence call on Indiana Avenue.

Mayor James Melfi said the city will have signage and a public ceremony to designate the renaming of the viaduct.
