Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Multi-billion dollar fixes...
The Leftists are experts in that field.
All union jobs...
Let me see more bike lanes, and More carpool lanes, Light rail, High speed rail, More electric bus’s.. No more freeways..
It would serve everyone well....if they just moved one-third of the DC agencies and employees....out of the region entirely (beyond Maryland or Virginia).
My god,three people on a “board” (controlled by libtards) make monumental decisions and rubber stamped by a governor.
A new Legion bridge and widening is definitely needed, however I note 2 things:
1) The traffic will expand to fill the new capacity, and
2) “managed lanes” = Lexus lanes. This won’t help with the problem. Most people don’t use the Lexus lanes already in existence now. If they really want to reduce congestion, then get rid of the Lexus lanes.
Solution: cut Federal bureaucrat functions and powers, or move to the state govts
“Maryland and Virginia’s Capital Beltway Accord, which allows for a new American Legion Bridge between the two states near Washington, D.C.”
Maryland made a clusterscrew of things when the Woodrow Wilson was replaced by demanding that Virginia use only union labor. Took at least two years and a couple of law suits to get things rolling..
Virginia is democrat controlled now so they might roll over for the union thing.
Wonder what other wrench Maryland will throw in the gears?
