In spite of intense opposition by the neighborhoods and communities that will feel its sharpest impact, the State is pushing ahead with a vote this Tuesday by the Maryland Transportation Authority to approve a contract for the 495-270 toll lane widening plan—the first step in their march toward final approval of this misguided project.

This project will turn Maryland’s transportation policy into a plaything of private profit for decades to come. Just in the last weeks, we have learned that if the toll lane project goes forward, a hidden contract clause will block construction of rail transit over the American Legion Bridge until 2087.
