Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s $9 billion transportation proposal, expanding major thoroughfares including I-270 and the Capital Beltway, triggered mixed reactions from the public and largely negative feedback from the Montgomery County Council.
On Thursday, Secretary of Transportation Pete Rahn will come before the council to address their concerns, including why they were not made aware of the plans before Gov. Hogan’s announcement in September.
Other topics will include price of tolls and involvement of Montgomery County officials in the revision process.
“Montgomery County and the state should be partners in this,” said Roger Berliner, President, Montgomery County Council. “We should be talking together. We should make sure that our priorities are aligned to the maximum extent possible.”
The council first invited Rahn in the beginning of October.
