Maryland Commuters Can Thank Hogan for I-270 Congestion

Apr 19, 2017

Annapolis, Md. – Despite his dog and pony shows, Hogan hasn’t been doing any favors for Maryland commuters along I-270 recently.

“Maryland commuters can thank Governor Hogan for longer commutes and more headaches on and around I-270,” said Maryland Democratic Party spokesperson Bryan Lesswing. “If Governor Hogan had focused on progress instead of his dog and pony shows, Maryland would be far closer to fixing the bottlenecks and congestion that are some of the worst in the country.”

Last year, Hogan delayed funding for the Corridor Cities Transitway – a high priority, highly anticipated transit project that would alleviate congestion along I-270. Local business leaders and transportation advocates denounced Hogan’s decision.

The project didn’t even make it on Hogan’s list of transportation priorities when he met with Trump’s transportation officials last month.

Hogan also played games with the critical Watkins Mill Interchange just to make a political point as part of his own public relations campaign.
