Maryland’s Beltway toll lanes would expand access to jobs in the region

July 20, 2021

Maryland’s multimodal high-occupancy toll lanes plan for Interstate 270 and the American Legion Bridge is essential to the D.C. area’s economic future. This critical infrastructure will dramatically reduce travel times, create jobs and expand access for everyone in our region. We call on regional leaders to join with us and the more than 60 business, labor and community organizations from across the region in supporting this important investment. Specifically, this investment will relieve congestion and improve travel times for both free and toll lane users, allow carpoolers free use, provide $300 million for transit and facilitate express bus service between key regional job and activity centers such as Bethesda, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Tysons and Reston.
