Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan proposed a $9 billion plan to widen three of the state’s most congested highways — the Capital Beltway, Interstate 270, and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway — in what he said would include the largest public-private partnership for highways in North America.
The projects would add four toll lanes each to Maryland’s portion of the Capital Beltway (I-495) and to I-270 from the Beltway to Frederick. It would also widen the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (MD 295) by four toll lanes after taking over ownership from the federal government.
Only the new lanes would have tolls; the others would remain free, he said.
