Charleston County deputy Joseph J. Matuskovic will be honored today with an intersection dedication. The intersection of Carriage Lane and Highway 61 will now be known as the Joseph H. Matuskovic Intersection.

Matuskovic was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2014.

News of the honor came in September, a day after the anniversary of the deputy's death and two days after the sheriff's office announced plans to build a memorial for fallen deputies.

Today's dedication is not open to the public.
