MD Community and Business Leaders Push Hard for I-270 Improvements, Including Express Lanes

WTOP News reports, “A bipartisan group of community, business and political leaders gathered near Interstate 270 Monday morning [September 19], pointing to rush hour traffic on the highway and calling for changes they claim would reduce congestion. . . . The coalition is calling for improvements, such as new express toll lanes and regional bus rapid transit service along the I-270 corridor that stretches from the American Legion Bridge to Frederick.”

The Washington Post’s Dr. Gridlock adds, “The coalition wants to revive dormant state studies that could lead to the addition of express toll lanes, which could manage traffic and provide lane space and financial support for a regional rapid bus system.”
