A proposal to dedicated part of Route 924 in Harford County to two deputies killed in the line of duty in February has passed the state senate.

The bill will now move on to the house.

If approved, the State Highways Administration would name the section of road between Singer Road and Route 24 "Heroes Highway" in honor of deputies Patrick Dailey and Mark Logsdon who were shot and killed near the Panera Bread in Abingdon, just off Route 924.

Later this week, another bill introduced after the Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies died will go before the senate.

The measure would extend the age children could receive benefits from a law enforcement officer who died in the line of duty.
