Unveiling held for Chris Kyle Memorial Highway

On Tuesday morning the unveiling ceremony for the Chris Kyle Memorial Highway was held at the Chris Kyle Memorial Plaza.

Several local and state leaders were in attendance including State Rep. Brooks Landgraf and Taya Kyle, widow of Chris, who spoke to the crowd.

Senator Kel Seliger and members of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce were also at the event.

In 2017 Rep. Landgraf filed a bill to have State Highway 191 in Ector County named in honor of Chris Kyle on the fourth anniversary of his death.

The Chris Kyle Memorial Plaza can be found along the Highway 191 frontage road heading east near MCH Mission Fitness.
