NOTTINGHAM, MD—A dedication ceremony will be held in Nottingham to honor two local heroes.

The dedication ceremony for the bridge at White Marsh Boulevard and Belair Road will be held at 8200 Belair Road (in the parking lot of American Freight Furniture and Mattress that overlooks the bridge) at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, according to Councilman David Marks.

The bridge has been dedicated to the memories Sergeant Eric M. Houck and Staff Sergeant Christopher O. Moudry.

Sgt. Houck, a Perry Hall native, was killed in Afghanistan on June 10, 2017. He was 25 at the time. He had married his high school sweetheart and had two children. His name was added to the Baltimore County War Memorial in August 2017.

Sgt. Moudry died on October 4, 2006 serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom. A graduate of Perry Hall High School, he was an accomplished athlete and member of Boy Scout Troop 746. He was 31 at the time and is survived by two children.

The bridge dedication was approved by the Maryland State Roads Commission.

“We are honored to recognize these two outstanding leaders,” commented Jack Amrhein with the Perry Hall Improvement Association.

Masks will be required at the dedication ceremony.
