Highway 191 between Midland and Odessa could soon get a name, the Chris Kyle Memorial Highway.

According to NewsWest 9, Representative Landgraf filed the bill for the highway name change on Tuesday for the Ector County stretch of Highway 191.

Chris Kyle was a U.S. Navy SEAL sniper born in Odessa in 1974 and he already has a memorial which is located on Highway 191.

The Chris Kyle Memorial Plaza, which features a prominent statue of Kyle, will soon be on the Highway named after him if the proposal gets approved.

Brooks Landgraf made the announcement that he was going to propose the bill last summer during the dedication of the Chris Kyle Memorial Plaza to thunderous applause from the people in attendance.
