A Swansea bridge has been renamed in honor of a local man killed while serving with the Army in Iraq.

The Wood Street Bridge was dedicated Thursday in honor of Sgt. Kyle Harrington.

Harrington was killed in a forklift accident in January 2009.

The Herald News reports that a memorial was erected in Harrington's honor at the site, carved with the words: "Kyle J. Harrington. Sgt. U.S. Army, died in Iraq Jan. 24, 2009."

Harrington, who would have celebrated his 29th birthday this month, was a 2003 graduate of Joseph Case High School.

Harrington's job was maintaining Humvees and other light vehicles.

He left behind a wife and two children.
