PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Part of Highway 16 in Kitsap County will be renamed to honor a Washington State Trooper who was killed during a traffic stop in 2012.

KING-TV reports (https://kng5.tv/1Oi7Y0b ) that the Washington State Transportation Commission will approve turning 10 miles of the highway into a memorial for Trooper Tony Radulescu.

Radulescu died February 23, 2012 while on patrol. During a traffic stop at mile marker 28 in Gorst, the driver of a pickup truck he had pulled over shot and killed him.

Kitsap County, Washington State Patrol and Radulescu’s family have already approved the highway memorial.

A formal dedication is planned for Feb. 23.
