I-270 lanes will be topic for delegation during Maryland Assembly session

Interstate 270 doesn’t run anywhere near Annapolis, but the road is likely to be a topic of conversation during the upcoming General Assembly session that starts early next month.

Frederick County’s delegation will work to make traffic congestion on the highway and U.S. 15, as well as a proposal by Gov. Larry Hogan (R) to add lanes and possibly tolls to the road, a focus during their time in Annapolis, delegation members said.

Hogan’s administration has proposed adding lanes, likely including toll lanes, to I-270 and Interstate 495 in an effort to relieve congestion on the roads as part of a public-private partnership.
