TOWNVILLE, SC (WBTW) South Carolina transportation leaders honored the six year old boy killed in last month’s shooting at an upstate elementary school.

The DOT Commission passed a resolution to rename the I-85 and SC-24 interchange in Anderson County the “Jacob L. Hall Memorial Interchange”.

“I very proudly make a motion that I trust will be a good memorial for this young man and also bring some healing to that community.” DOT Commissioner Ben Davis said.

A plaque was also added to the “Heroes for Higher” Batmobile in honor of Jacob.

The young boy was a big fan of super heroes and “Batman” spoke at his funeral.

The “Batmobile” is scheduled to make a special appearance at the Townville Christmas Parade in December.
