WESTERVILLE -- A portion of Interstate 270 has officially been named for two Westerville officers that were killed in the line of duty last February.

Officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering, who died in the line of duty Feb. 10, 2018, are now honored by the portion of I-270 between Cleveland Avenue and State Street bearing their names.

The Ohio Department of Transportation installed the signs this week. Westerville City Council will present the families with replica signs next Tuesday.
