$9 billion highway project would widen 3 major Maryland roadways with toll ...

Larry Hogan on Thursday proposed a $9 billion project to add four express Toll Lanes to the entire stretches of three of Maryland’s most congested highways — the I-495 Capital Beltway, the I-270 spur connecting Frederick to D.C. and the 295 Baltimore-Washington Parkway between the city and Washington.

Hogan proposed adding four toll lanes to the entire stretch of that roadway, a project with an estimated price tag of $1.4 billion.

In addition, Hogan said his office has started writing a formal request for information for private companies to bid on the $7.6 billion projects to Widen I-495 and I-270.

Smart growth advocates harshly criticized Hogan's plan as "failing" Maryland, calling it a costly, disruptive band-aid solution that will ultimately increase traffic on side roads.

The National Park Service drew a similar conclusion after Congress mandated a study in 2012 about whether to expand the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, which is technically federal parkland.
