Wrong on the ICC; Wrong on a New Potomac Crossing

Wrong on the ICC
Wrong on a New Potomac Crossing

For decades Maryland local and state officials opposed the Intercounty Connector (ICC) and a new northern Potomac River crossing.

Today, we learned that the ICC (30 million annual trips) is Maryland’s second most heavily used toll facility.

And today we re-learned (for the zillionth time) that even a brief shutdown of the American Legion bridge results in region-wide traffic mayhem and why such incidents (along with North Korea’s latest missile test) add even more urgency to construction of a new northern crossing.

Surveys over the years have shown strong public support for the ICC and a new crossing.

It’s Time for Maryland Officials
To Listen (again) to Their Electorate
