A portion of Interstate 74 is being dedicated to a fallen Illinois State Police Trooper. 37 year old Ryan Albin was killed on duty last year on I-74 when his squad car collided with a box truck as they entered a construction zone. Governor Bruce Rauner attended the dedication ceremony.
Trooper Albin served in District 6 as a Canine Officer and was known for his dedication to his unit. The Ryan Albin Memorial Highway stretches from Mile Marker 155 to 160 near Farmer City.
