The Senate voted Wednesday to rename the lonely stretch of highway where Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cory Wride was ambushed and murdered in his honor.
Lawmakers voted unanimously to pass SB234 to name SR-73 — through Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain and Cedar Valley — as the "Cory B. Wride Memorial Highway." Wride was killed on Jan. 30.
The bill now goes to the House.
"I think it’s a fitting tribute to one of our great public servants," said Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs, sponsor of the bill.
