"Gov. Larry Hogan unveiled a plan Thursday to spend $152 million on improvements to Md. 32," reports Heather Norris. Officials from Carroll and Howard counties are quoted in the article supporting the plan as necessary for a "major improvement in the quality of life for local commuters."

"The project will widen the stretch of Md. 32 — a major artery in the southeast Carroll and northern Howard County region — between Md. 108 and Interstate 70 from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided highway and study ways to widen the road and alleviate traffic north of I-70 and into Carroll County," according to Norris.

Governor Hogan is on a public relations roll in revent weeks, announcing a $700 million redevelopment plan for Baltimore and a $135 million overhaul of Baltimore's bus system in recent weeks.
