Jericho Road Covered Bridge rededicated, reopened

Jericho Covered Bridge Reopening 1The historic Jericho Road covered bridge was reopened on Monday.

A ceremony was held on Monday morning to rededicate and reopen the bridge, which spans the Little Gunpowder Falls between Baltimore and Harford Counties.

The Jericho Road Covered Bridge was built during the Civil War era, and today it stands as one of Maryland’s six public historic covered bridges, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration.

A nearly $2 million project restored the 150-year-old bridge, which carries a single lane of traffic along Jerusalem Road in Kingsville.

Harford County Executive Barry Glassman, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz attended today’s ceremony.
