State Applying for Federal Grant to Improve Highways

August 23rd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s Department of Transportation is pursuing Federal grant monies for improvement to the heavily congested Interstate 495 and I-270 highway corridors.  The program envisions opportunities to improve transit and multimodal access and spur economic growth on I-495 and I-270.  Improvements planned include express bus options in Maryland, ridesharing incentives and parallel transportation improvements along the MARC Brunswick Line.  A comprehensive planning study for I-270 is also planned.  Open houses in Montgomery and Frederick counties are planned for the fall where the public can provide input.
