St. Louis Co. Highway to Honor Fallen Deputy

On September 2, 2002, while responding to an emergency call, St. Louis County Sheriff’s Deputy Bradley Anderson died when the patrol car he was riding in collided with a minivan.

Next week, on the anniversary of his death, family and colleagues of Deputy Anderson will gather to unveil a permanent memorial to him.

Highway 100 in White Township south of Aurora will now bear the name Deputy Sheriff Bradley Alan Anderson Memorial Highway.

A dedication service, which will include an honor guard procession and the unveiling of new road signs, will be held Wednesday, September 2, at 1:30 p.m., at the South Twin Lake beach facility, 5493 Twin Lakes Loop 45, Aurora.

The memorial highway designation covers County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 100 between CSAH 4 and CSAH 99.

It includes the accident site where Deputy Anderson died, at age 50, leaving behind a wife and two sons.

Anderson served St. Louis County as a deputy for 11 years, and prior to that had worked as an Alaska State Trooper for 10 years.

The St. Louis County Board gave its unanimous approval to renaming the highway for Deputy Anderson back in June.
