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.

January of 2004 after graduating from Cuba-Rushford High School in

Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and a Humanitarian

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

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.
