Cape Cod bridge to be named after Yarmouth Marine

DENNIS, Mass. (AP) — A dedication ceremony has been scheduled to name a bridge that passes over Route 6 in Dennis in honor of a Marine from Yarmouth who died in Afghanistan.

The ceremony Tuesday morning will name the overpass between exits 8 and 9 on for Cpl. Nicholas Xiarhos (ex-AHR'-ose).

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.
