MTBMA attended MDOT’s Public-Private Partnership (P3) Program Conference on Thursday, December 13th where Secretary Pete Rahn announced the Traffic Relief Plan for I-495 & I-270 to reduce traffic congestion, increase economic development, enhance safety, and return quality of life to Maryland commuters. This announcement goes hand-in-hand with the State’s determination and commitment to deliver state-of-the-art transportation solutions to Maryland residents.
This specific P3 Program is the largest initiative of the Traffic Relief Plan which considers transformative solutions to address congestion along these highways in Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Frederick Counties.
The I-495 & I-270 P3 Program is a historic effort to reduce congestion for millions of Maryland drivers by seeking input from the private sector to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain improvements on both I-495 and I-270. Improvements will be focused to transform these overloaded interstates to allow people to reach their destinations faster and to remove overflow traffic from the local roads.
