State Route 64 renames part of road to honor Chief Warrant Officer 4 Christian J. Koch

Part of State Route 64 has been renamed the Chief Warrant Officer 4 Christian J. Koch Memorial Highway in honor of a local fallen soldier.

Koch along with two of his fellow National Guard members, Chief Warrant Officer 5 Steven Skoda and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Daniel Prial, were in a deadly helicopter accident in Mendon in January.

A procedural error led to the crash during a night vision proficiency training.

The portion of the road being renamed is close to where Koch lived with his family.
