Travis County Commissioners Court took steps Jan. 15 to designate a section of SH 71 as the Trooper Carlos Ray Warren Memorial Highway.
Warren served in the Texas Department of Public Safety for twelve years. He died March 5, 1991, while responding to an abduction at a rest stop on SH 71.
The portion of SH 71 proposed to be named in honor of the deceased trooper stretches from the intersection of SH 130 to Bastrop.
The court’s action Tuesday sends the proposal to the Legislature for consideration.
