American Legion Bridge

Despite the judge’s ruling for state and federal highway officials, the plan to relieve congestion by widening portions of the Capital Beltway and Interstate 270 remain stalled.

The next opportunity for the state to apply for grants under the federal transportation program opens later this year.

Transportation officials reboot conversation with the public over widening of the Capital Beltway and portions of I-270 and a new American Legion Bridge.

Moving to a surcharge based on the number of miles driven is one change the state’s new Transportation Revenue and Infrastructure Needs Commission could recommend.

The proposed project extends along a 6.5-mile stretch from the George Washington Memorial Parkway to the western spur of I-270.

The American Legion Bridge rebuild will not only improve transportation, it will be an expressway to the middle class for Maryland’s working men and women.
