Maryland Moves Ahead With Controversial Plans For Super-Highway

The plans, once thought to be dead, will connect several counties in lower Maryland.

"The 18-mile, $2.4 billion road, known as the intercounty connector, would be the most expensive new highway project in the Washington region and the first major road in the area in a generation. The six-lane highway would cut through a mixture of parkland and residential communities between the Interstate 270 and Interstate 95 corridors in Montgomery and Prince George's counties and claim approximately 58 homes in its path."
