I-495 and I-270 Managed Lanes Project
The Mayor and Council oppose a state project to add toll lanes on interstates 270 and 495 between the American Legion Bridge and Frederick, as a state board approved the project.
The Board of Public Works, comprised of the governor, comptroller and state treasurer, approved the project on a 2-1 vote on Jan. 8, 2020, with Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp voting in opposition.
The approved plan calls for toll lanes between a widened Legion Bridge and Interstate 370, and defers widening the remainder of I-495.
The Mayor and Council have actively engaged with the state about this proposed project, encouraging state officials not to take homes or breach sound-wall boundaries.
Visit the Maryland Department of Transportation for more information about the I-495 and I-270 Managed Lanes Project.
