The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are evaluating potential solutions to reduce congestion on I-270 between I-370 and I-70. This evaluation on I-270 between I-370 and I-70 will begin with early planning activities prior to an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Initial Pre-NEPA activities include a review of existing and future traffic, roadway, and environmental conditions to inform the development of alternatives.

Please alert your constituents that MDOT SHA will be inviting the public to learn more at a series of workshops in Frederick and Montgomery Counties.
