Maryland and Virginia have decided on a plan to widen the American Legion Memorial Bridge, connecting the Northern Virginia suburbs of McLean and Great Falls with Maryland’s Montgomery County.
"Maryland and Virginia have reached a significant funding agreement on a plan to speed up clogged commutes by renovating and expanding the Capital Beltway’s American Legion Bridge," reports Max Smith.
"The plan calls for the bridge, which connects he Northern Virginia suburbs to Montgomery County, to be widened with room for toll lanes extending across the Potomac," adds Smith.
According to Smith, the plan will also enable Maryland to change the tolling scheme for planned lanes around the Capital Beltway. "The state is now planning to award two separate contracts to private companies to build and operate toll lanes around the top side of the Capital Beltway over the Legion Bridge to Interstate 95 North and separately up and down Interstate 270."
The article includes a lot more details on the bridge widening and the toll lane projects.
