Maryland roadway opens

Updated Feb 23, 2011

The first segment of the Maryland Intercounty Connector between Interstate 370 at Shady Grove Road and Georgia Avenue/Maryland 97 in Montgomery County has opened.

When completed, the ICC will link I-270 and I-95 with an 18-mile east-west electronic toll road connecting Montgomery and northwestern Prince George’s counties. The unveiling of the first segment also marks the first instance of electronic tolling in Maryland. Drivers on the ICC will pay tolls electronically to avoid waiting at tollbooths, and tolls will vary throughout the day according to traffic levels.

The overall project cost is $2.56 billion, with $516 million coming from a DOT Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan, $750 million from Grant Anticipated Revenue Vehicle bonds, $19 million from other federal funding and the remainder from state funding sources.
