Beltway May Still Be Expanded in College Park and Prince George’s, But May Not in Montgomery

The MDOT has recently agreed to a proposal to MoCo’s Plan for traffic relief.

According to the announcement, the plan calls for “active traffic management and spot improvements” along the Beltway from Bethesda to Adelphi, using existing right of way.

The new proposal envisions improvements to MARC commuter rail service, a network of bus rapid transit lines, new park-and-ride facilities and “activity center connections” to give commuters new options.

Additionally, the plan proposes the construction of new “managed lanes” — a mix of free and variable toll lanes — on the American Legion Bridge, I-270 from a point north of I-370 south and the connecting portion of I-495.

Unfortunately, new managed lanes also would be constructed on the I-95 median, from the Intercounty Connector (MD-200) to the Beltway and east through Prince George’s County to National Harbor.

The plan also creates new reversible managed lanes between Frederick County and northern Montgomery that would run south in the morning and north at night.
