About Fix270Now

Maryland officials have been studying a combination of new express lanes and dedicated bus-rapid-transit (BRT) service in the I-270 corridor since 1994. Those studies have identified affordable, sustainable, long-term solutions to Maryland’s worst daily traffic nightmare – real solutions that would improve peak-hour speeds by up to 87% and provide much better transit service -- but those studies were put on hold and have gone nowhere since 2008. Voters in both parties support a combination of new express lanes and dedicated BRT service, from Frederick to the Capital Beltway, by a whopping 7-1 margin. Join to press state and local officials to restart these studies and get Maryland moving!
