During a special Veterans' Week ceremony Friday, Mayor Jim Watson will be joined by councillor of Riley Brockington, to rename the Airport Parkway Pedestrian Bridge, the Juno Beach Memorial Bridge.
The dedication is a symbol of gratitude and will serve to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the battle of Normandy.
The invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, led to the end of the war in Europe 11 months later.
Around 340 Canadians were killed in the assault on Juno Beach, and another 574 wounded.
The announcement will take place at the five-year-old bridge on Friday morning at 11 a.m.
