Stephenson County to rename overpass in honor of Trooper Brooke Jones-Story


STEPHENSON COUNTY, Ill. (WTVO) — Stephenson County plans to rename an overpass in honor of slain Illinois State Trooper Brooke Jones-Story.

The overpass on U.S. Route 20 will be renamed in her honor.

In March, Jones-Story was killed in the line of duty after a semi-truck hit while she was conducting a roadside traffic stop on US 20.

Lawmakers say the tribute honors Jones-Story while also serving as a reminder for drivers to follow Scott’s Law or the “Move Over” law.

A dedication ceremony is scheduled for August 30th.
