Maryland board approves first contract to design toll lanes for Beltway, I-270

August 12, 2021

The first contract for companies to design billions of dollars worth of toll lanes for Interstate 270 and part of the Capital Beltway won approval Wednesday from a Maryland board, marking the start of the state’s largest project aimed at relieving traffic congestion. The Board of Public Works — composed of the governor, comptroller and treasurer — voted 2 to 1 to approve a “predevelopment agreement” with Australian firms Transurban and Macquarie to plan the lanes at their own expense.
