Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s persistence paid off last week with a milestone in his ambitious toll lane plan to expand portions of the Beltway and Interstate 270, two of the most gridlocked highways in one of the nation’s most gridlocked metropolitan areas.

Now Mr. Hogan, a Republican, has less than five months in his term to get further approvals. He’ll need it.
