ST.LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A fallen St. Louis County police officer could soon have a portion of a local highway dedicated in his honor.

State Representative Doug Beck filed a bill Friday to dedicate a portion of Highway 30 to Ofc. Snyder.

The bill would renamed the stretch of Highway 30 from Highway 21 to Highway P as the ‘Officer Snyder Memorial Highway’.

Ofc. Snyder was killed in the line of duty after responding to a disturbance in Green Park in October of 2016.

Lawmakers will review the bill next week.
