Governor-Elect Wes Moore’s Statement on MDOT Decision on I-495/1-270 Toll Lanes Contract

by Patrick Herron

Last week the Maryland Department of Transportation announced the next steps for the State of Maryland’s Traffic Relief Plan, which included a10-month extension for private companies to submit proposals. On Friday, Governor-Elect Wes Moore issued the following statement:

“Improvements along I-270 and the Capital Beltway are
essential to our economic growth, quality of life, and
environment; and must be done thoughtfully and
equitably. The Hogan Administration’s decision to delay the potential approval of this project to next year
provides us with an opportunity to build options that are innovative, thoughtful, and inclusive.

Under Lt. Gov.-Elect Aruna Miller’s leadership, the Moore-Miller administration is eager to work collaboratively with Comptroller-elect Brooke Lierman, Treasurer Dereck Davis, the Maryland General Assembly, County Executive Marc Erich, and our communities to find the best path forward.”
