Emergency pothole repairs set for BW Parkway, Md. senator says

March 27th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

WTOP reports that relief is on the way for commuters who have been dodging all the potholes that recently have turned the Baltimore-Washington Parkway into a virtual moonscape. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who called the situation “unacceptable,” told WTOP on Wednesday that emergency work is about to begin, after discussions between Maryland’s congressional delegation and the National Park Service.

“They have informed us that they will begin emergency contracting procedures,” Van Hollen said. “They will make this a priority and get the job done, so that we can go back to having a reliable, safe BW Parkway.”

Van Hollen had written a letter to the park service, after hearing from many motorists who couldn’t believe how bad the road was. He and other public officials said the situation was unsafe.
