Long-term solutions

Studies show a multi-modal investment in new road and transit capacity is needed from the Beltway to Frederick and would bring dramatic, lasting relief.

While portions of I-270 have been widened in the past, two key sections at either end have not been – the lower portion of the I-270 spur that narrows down to just two general purpose lanes as it approaches the Beltway, and the 2-lane sections from northern Montgomery into Frederick that have never been widened since I-270 was built. New lane capacity is needed in both of these sections to ease congestion and to provide new dedicated lanes for regional bus-rapid-transit vehicles to use.
