"FIREFIGHTER  TIM  GUNTHER  MEMORIAL  HIGHWAY".  ALL THAT PORTION OF THE
STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM CONSTITUTING STATE ROUTE FIFTY-FIVE IN THE CITY  OF
POUGHKEEPSIE,  COUNTY  OF DUTCHESS, SHALL BE DESIGNATED AND KNOWN AS THE
"FIREFIGHTER TIM GUNTHER MEMORIAL HIGHWAY".
  § 2. The commissioner of transportation shall provide for the  instal-
lation  and  maintenance of adequate signing of the state highway system
as designated pursuant to section one of this  act.  However,  to  avoid
confusion  and  to limit any possible disruption of commerce, the desig-
nation called for pursuant to section one of this act shall  be  one  of
ceremonial  nature  and  the  official name of such highway shall not be
changed as a result of this act.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
