COLUMBUS- State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today applauded the House’s passage of House Bill (HB) 616, which renames a portion of I-275 in Hamilton County the “Kaia L. Grant Memorial Highway.”

“I’m elated we were able to have the Kaia L. Grant Memorial Highway be the driver for this road naming package,” said Rep. Denson. “I appreciate the overwhelming support from my colleagues to ensure that Kaia’s memory endures forever.”

Springdale Officer Kaia L. Grant, age 33, died tragically during a police chase on March 21.
