Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett says he'll sign a bill that would rename a bridge in the southwest part of the state for Stan Musial.

The bridge carries StateĀ  Route 1077 over the Monongahela River between Monessen and Musial's hometown of Donora, all about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

The measure's sponsor says the bridge will "serve as a permanent reminder that, despite humble beginnings, hard work can lead to great accomplishments."
