Section of 14A designated 'Christopher J. Scott Memorial Highway'
DUNDEE—A ceremony at the Dundee school football field Saturday, Sept. 7, officially designated a portion of State Route 14A between the town of Reading in Schuyler County and the village of Dundee in Yates County as the “Christopher J. Scott Memorial Highway.” Family and friends of the late U.S. Army Specialist Christopher J. Scott were joined by state and local officials and area veterans at the ceremony. The 9.5 mile stretch of road which begins at the south end of State Route 14A where it branches off from State Route 14 and ends at the northern village limits of Dundee, follows a portion of the route of the procession which brought Scott to his final resting place in Sept. 2011. Scott was killed Sept. 3, 2011 while serving in Kandahar, Afghanistan. State Senator Tom O’Mara (R,C-Big Flats) and Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R,C,I-Corning) sponsored the legislation authorizing the designation.
