MD Newspaper Looks at Possible Solutions to I-270 Congestion

The Frederick News-Post editorial board looks at the congestion on I-270, noting that, “An economic lifeline it might be, but most days of the week, Interstate 270 between Frederick and Montgomery counties looks more like a clogged artery.” The editors tackle the “induced travel” phenomenon and note, “Toll lanes and a high-speed bus service are two options proposed by a newly formed coalition of civic, business and elected leaders are also pushing for alternate solutions to resolve the gridlock. Members of Fix 270 Now say they want state officials to dust off two studies completed in the 1990s for possible solutions.”
