Berliner Faults Hogan’s Highway Plan

Council President Roger Berliner told reporters Monday that Gov. Larry Hogan’s plans for I-270 and the Capital Beltway had three major flaws:

  • Four new lanes on I-270 aren’t needed. Two reversible lanes would be sufficient.
  • There’s no room for four new lanes on the Capital Beltway through Montgomery County. Adding the lanes would mean taking homes, Holy Cross Hospital and parkland.
  • Hogan offered no plan for expanding the American Legion Bridge, which is a major choke point in the region.
