Part of a busy highway is being renamed in honor of fallen Utah County sheriff’s sergeant Cory Wride. The House passed a bill yesterday renaming a section of state Route 73 the Cory B. Wride Memorial Highway. The section will stretch roughly fifteen miles from Redwood Road to the Tooele County line. Wride was shot to death January 30th while sitting in his patrol car.
