Interchange named after IL state trooper

An Illinois State Trooper was recognized for his bravery, 30 years after his death.

Illinois State Trooper John Kugelman's family was on hand as the I-290 at I-355 interchange in Itasca was named in his honor. The interchange marks where the Eisenhower Expressway and the Veterans Memorial Tollway meet.

Kugelman died in a crash in 1986 while trying to stop a speeding driver.
