Corpus Christi, Texas — The Department of Public Safety hosted a ceremony this afternoon to announce the newly renamed part of the freeway in honor of the fallen police officer.

Law enforcement agencies gathered at Falfurias High School after soldiers revealed a new highway marker for Corporal Roel Garcia Memorial Highway, named after a police officer who died in a line of duty in March 1997.

“It’s a great honor,” said Corporal Garcia’s sister, Louella Cortez. “He dedicated his life and his services to DPS and his community, and this commemorates his life, and it’s just a great honor for our family.”

The newly named road lies between County Road 304 and Market Road 755 on US281.
