The newest portion of the Erickson Avenue-Stone Spring Road connector is ready for traffic. The portion opening Wednesday will be called Erickson Avenue and designated a memorial byway for Harrisonburg Police Department Sgt. Manuel W. Trenary. Trenary, a 26-year veteran, was shot and killed by an unknown burglar as he investigated a break-in at the L&S Diner on North Liberty Street in 1959.
