One part of the Francis Scott Key Bridge complex may be getting new name.
Located at 303 Authority Drive in Dundalk, the structure is currently called the "Francis Scott Key Bridge Engineering/Construction Building."
The Maryland Board of Public Works will determine whether to approve the request at an upcoming meeting in Annapolis.
According to the April 3 meeting agenda, the Maryland Transportation Authority is asking that structure be called the "Walter E. Woodford Jr. Building."
Woodford, who is a professional engineer, has dedicated "six decades [to] shaping Maryland’s transportation infrastructure," according to the Maryland Transportation Authority, which said he served 10 governors, 13 secretaries of transportation, and ensured the progress of "mega projects" like the Fort McHenry Tunnel and I-95 express toll lanes.
