Bay Bridge Walk Canceled For 5th Year In A Row

STEVENSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Maryland Transportation Authorities have canceled the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk for the fifth year in a row, citing budget concerns.

Maryland Transportation Authority spokeswoman Kelly Melhem says the popular walk across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is not being held because of “ongoing cost-containment measures.” She says the event has become more expensive since Sept. 11 due to increases in security.

The event, normally held in May, has been canceled in recent years due to bad weather, renovations and economic conditions. It was first held in 1975.

    The state of Maryland can fund breakfast & lunches for illegals, defray the cost of tuition for illegals but it can’t say “Thank you” to its citizens who pay for such a blatant injustice.
