Fulton’s Liberty Bridge plaque honoring World War I veterans will be rededicated with a Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 11.
The plaque, which had been placed in storage until a new location could be found, is mounted near the military artillery piece in Memorial Park in Fulton.
The plaque and part of the old bridge was removed from Liberty Bridge that was demolished to make way for the new roundabout. The new plaque, mounted on a concrete piece of the old bridge, is now displayed just west of the old Memorial Bridge.
The plaque was placed on the bridge naming it Liberty Bridge in honor of World War I veterans.
David Beaver, Fulton American Legion Post 210 commander, praised city workers for their efforts in preserving the plaque and mounting it near the artillery piece in Memorial Park.
