Maryland Big Toll Lanes Project Moving Forward
"Maryland is moving forward on its plan to add four toll lanes to both Interstate 270 and the Capital Beltway," report Andrew Metcalf.
"On Thursday, the state’s transportation department announced it received 27 responses to its request for initial information from companies interested in financing, building and operating the estimated $7.6 billion project," adds Metcalf.
The news about the state's plans to add the Capital Beltway and I-270 broke in September 2017, when the focus was on the project's potential to become the nation's largest ever public-private partnership.
The size of the project meant the request for initial information elicited global attention. Companies in seven companies responded to the request. Next up for the project—a request for proposals.
