John C. Brown Memorial Bridge

A new fence, installed in late July, provided the final flourish for the John C. Brown Memorial Bridge rehabilitation. The bridge, which provides a critical link between the eastern and western portions of the city over the Metrorail and CSX tracks on Edmonston Drive, underwent a yearlong rehabilitation that included cleaning and repairing structural beams, replacing expansion joints, and repairing potholes on the bridge deck. The city also installed a pedestal for the plaque dedicating the bridge to Cpl. John C. Brown, who was the first Marylander killed in the Korean War.
