St. Louis County Commissioners unanimously approved the renaming of Highway 100, Tuesday.
A six mile section of the road near Aurora will be renamed “Deputy Sheriff Bradley Alan Anderson Memorial Highway” in honor of the former St. Louis County deputy.
Deputy Anderson passed away on Septermber 2, 2002 following a collision on that section of highway.
St. Louis County Commissioner Tom Rukavina said the gesture was overdue, Tuesday.
“Sheriff Litman explained that this was something that they had wanted to do years ago and for whatever reason it never moved forward.”
Rukavina added, “I’m glad to see that we can pay tribute today to Sheriff Anderson and that tragedy.”
Deputy Anderson served the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office for 11 years, but had 21 years of law enforcement experience.
Before joining St. Louis County Anderson served 10 years as an Alaska State Trooper.
Rukavina believes the unanimous vote honors all St. Louis County law enforcement.
“Given the circumstances with law enforcement today…this made the whole department feel good.”
