Cas Taylor Jr Bridge Dedication Set for Saturday

May 20th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

The Baltimore Street Bridge will be officially renamed the Casper R. Taylor Jr. Bridge in a dedication ceremony scheduled for this Saturday. A group of citizens attended an early February meeting of the Cumberland City Council with the proposed name change to honor Taylor, the former Speaker of the House who represented the city in Annapolis for nearly 30 years. The bridge at Baltimore Street, which crosses Wills Creek, is a primary artery into the downtown.  Mayor Ray Morriss tells WCBC News that the former speaker has  never been one to make himself the focal point- even when it came to the projects that he was the driving force behind. The bridge dedication, he says, is long overdue and most fitting.
