DontWiden270.org is organizing a Community Meeting Against Widening I-270 on March 9th. In the wake of the Maryland Department of Transportation's (MDOT) decision to abandon consideration of all transit options to relieve congestion and focus solely on adding lanes to I-270, local residents are more concerned than ever about the uncertain fate of our homes, neighborhoods, and communities.
That’s why this meeting will focus on resident concerns and what our elected representatives are doing about this problem. This is your opportunity to hear from Delegate Kumar Barve, who heads the powerful Environment and Transportation Committee, and other local elected officials what actions they are taking to put the brakes on MDOT's plans to widen I-270. And its your opportunity to impress upon our elected officials the urgency of dealing with this debacle.
The meeting is on March 9th, at 3:00 pm at the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Dr, Rockville.
