"Trooper Bobby McCoun Memorial Highway"
US 127 in Anderson County

Lawrenceburg, KY - On Wednesday, April 30, 2003, the Kentucky State Police joined the family of Trooper Bobby McCoun for the unveiling of signs naming a portion of US 127 Bypass in Anderson County the "Trooper Bobby McCoun Memorial Highway". US 127 Bypass between mile markers 1.940 and 6.175 is being named in honor and memory of Trooper McCoun who was killed in the line of duty, September 1, 1975 in Pike County.

This roadway is being named as a result of passage of senate bill 18 by the 2002 Kentucky General Assembly and was signed into law on March 20, 2002, by Governor Paul E. Patton.

Additional signs will be unveiled over the next few months honoring all 23 Kentucky State Police officers killed in the line of duty. Notification will be provided when each sign is erected. Below is a list of 13 of the 23 locations. Locations for ten fallen troopers are pending.
