Gazette.net: Delaney favors toll lanes for Interstate 270 - Legislators, business leaders talk about Montgomery, Frederick corridor

U.S. Rep. John K. Delaney said Thursday that toll lanes might be needed to ease traffic and congestion on Interstate 270, a corridor vital to the future of Montgomery and Frederick counties.

Leaders in the region must make sure the highway operates as efficiently as possible, Delaney (D-Dist. 6) of Potomac told legislators and business leaders from the two counties Thursday in Frederick at a meeting on the I-270 corridor.

Del. Michael Hough (D) of Brunswick, an incoming state senator from District 4, said Virginia has done a good job of combining ideas such as high-occupancy toll lanes and private investment in infrastructure to help ease congestion on its part of the Beltway and other major roads in the Washington, D.C. area.

Both ideas seem as if they would be ideal concepts for helping address problems on I-270, Hough said.

Delaney said leaders should be cautious about public-private partnerships — sometimes, local governments get involved in deals that turn out badly for their constituents.
