Cape Cod bridge named after Yarmouth Marine

Posted: Updated:

YARMOUTH (AP) — A Cape Cod bridge has been renamed in honor of a Marine from Yarmouth who died in Afghanistan.

The Route 6 overpass between exits 8 and 9 in Yarmouth was named Tuesday the Marine Cpl. Nicholas Xiarhos Veterans Memorial Overpass.

The 21-year-old Xiarhos was killed by a roadside bomb in July 2009.

He grew up in Yarmouth, was a graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, and was the son of Yarmouth Deputy Police Chief Steven Xiarhos and his wife, Lisa.

Gov. Deval Patrick signed a bill in July to name the overpass after Xiarhos.
