Harry J. Parrish Boulevard

The new name for the "Airport Access Road". I wish they could have found a larger road for his name, but it is still a well-deserved tribute to the man who gave his life for our community.

From the Manassas Journal-Messenger:

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted Tuesday to honor the late Del. Harry J. Parrish, R-Manassas, by renaming the Manassas Airport access road in his memory.

The supervisors approved renaming the road currently called Airport Connector Road to Harry J. Parrish Boulevard.
Parrish was instrumental in establishing the airport when he served on the Manassas Town Council.

A portion of the road is within the limits of the City of Manassas. The move to rename the road is a collaborative effort between the Manassas City Council and the Prince William Board of County Supervisors.

That's just an excerpt, read the whole story at the link above.
