FRANKLIN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A MoDot worker killed on the job in Franklin County will now get a bridge named in his honor.

Lyndon Ebker, 55, was hit by a driver in 2016 while flagging traffic at a work site on Highway 100.

State lawmakers now say the bridge over Big Boeuf Creek will be named the “Lydon Ebker Memorial Bridge”.

An 81-year-old driver was charged with assault in the case surrounding his death.

Officials report 18 MoDot employees have been killed on the job in Missouri since 2000.

The hope of the new memorial is to remind drivers to slow down and pay attention in work sites on the roads and highways.

Signs recognizing the memorial will be up by the end of August.
