Should 270 Widening Be A Priority for State Legislators?

Our homes and neighborhoods are still threatened by Governor Hogan’s plan to widen I-270 and I-495. We’re going to keep the pressure on the Governor, but its time to let our representatives in the State Legislature know that we need them to make this issue a priority in January, when the next legislative session begins.

They need to hear from you. There are a lot of issue for Legislators during the 90-day session, and we need to make sure Hogan’s highway project is at the top of their list.

That’s why your voice will matter so much at the public hearing on Wednesday, Nov 14 at 7pm. The entire Montgomery County delegation will be there to hear the public’s reaction to the State’s Transportation plans, including Hogan’s plan for I-270 and I-495.

Here are the details:

When: Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 7PM.
