PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To designate a portion of the state highway system as the "Sergeant
Mark Bradley Memorial Bridge". The section of road to be named is the
bridge on interstate route 86 crossing state route 305 in the village
of Cuba, county of Allegany.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
It would amend the highway law by adding a new section 343-z to read
as follows: portion of the state highway to be designated as the

"Sergeant Mark Bradley Memorial Bridge". The bridge on interstate
route eighty-six which crosses state route three hundred five in the
village of Cuba, county of Allegany, shall be designated and known as
the "Sergeant Mark Bradley Memorial Bridge".

§2. The Commissioner of Transportation shall provide for the
installation and maintenance of adequate signing of the state highway
system as designated pursuant to section one of this act.

JUSTIFICATION:
Sergeant Mark Bradley enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in
January of 2004 after graduating from Cuba-Rushford High School in
2003.

deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as a
humanitarian deployment to Haiti.

Sergeant Bradley's awards include three Marine Corps Good Conduct
Medals, the National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign
Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary
Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and a Humanitarian
Service Medal.

In the fall of 2010 Sergeant Bradley made it through a rigorous
selection process to attend and successfully complete the Marine Corp
Scout Sniper School. An accomplishment which in and of itself speaks
to this young man's immense character and dedication for his country
and for his fellow Marines.

On June 3, 2011 Sergeant Bradley was injured by an improvised
exploding device while conducting combat operations in Helmand
Province, Afghanistan in
support of Operation Enduring Freedom. sustaining serious injuries to
his lower body and left arm, Sergeant Bradley fought valiantly to
survive.
However, on June 16, 2011 at the Bethesda Naval Hospital, Sergeant
Mark Bradley passed away. His final moments were spent with his loved
ones by his side.

Because of his honorable service to the United States, this bill would
memorialize the bridge on interstate route eighty-six which crosses
state route three hundred five in the Sergeant Bradley's hometown of
Cuba in remembrance of his heroism, dedication and great sacrifice.
