Update:

“Contractor Tutor Perini will handle the design and construction contract for Phase 1 South of the New American Legion Bridge I-270 Traffic Relief Plan in the US state of Maryland.”

They better widen 495 EB where it shrinks to 2 lanes.

This has never been an issue for the Montgomery County planning staff, the Planning Board or the Montgomery County Council.  None have ever been concerned about it.

Why?  That is the worst part of the beltway.

i'd say that's the portion i've been stuck in traffic the least, between the American Legion Bridge and I-95. not that it couldn't use some love, but calling it "the worst part of the beltway" is a bit of a stretch.

The small eastbound section where it narrows to 2 lanes often does experience delays, but I think that's more due to the influx of I-270 traffic just downstream, not the flow along I-495 itself.  That curve is pretty sharp, though (in both directions, actually) and it'd be nice to have it smoothed a bit (not that its a realistic idea, just that it would help with safety).

I hope someone will explain to Moore that cancelling the project would leave intact one of the worst traffic bottlenecks in the country, harming the quality of life throughout the DC area and create a lot of animosity on Virginia's part.
