The legislation, A3749/S470, would rename a section of the highway in Howell Township after Trooper Marc Castellano, a resident of Howell, who was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident while investigating an incident on the roadway.
“Naming a portion of 195 in Howell after Trooper Castellano is a tribute to his service and sacrifice. This designation honors the memory of a beloved police officer, husband, father, son and brother,” said Singer.
Kean added, “Trooper Castellano paid the ultimate price in the line of duty to keep our community safe, now we as a community have an obligation to keep his memory alive and remember his heroic actions.”
“Renaming this section of highway after Trooper Castellano is a fitting way to honor this fine young man who made the ultimate sacrifice in order to keep us safe,” said Thomson.
