ICC Gets Federal Approval

Steve was right in his entry below. It was a big announcement on the intercounty connector. And it was hot.

Steve wrote a story about it that's on the site right now.

Where did the Post get that map that accompanies the file (the PDF)? It shows the two new interchanges along Rte 29, at Rte 198 and at Randolph/Cherry Hill--which were each completed within the last year. But it doesn't show the Norbeck Rd extension to Rte 198, which was completed years ago!

Speaking of Route 29, good luck to the folks who now have to put up with yet another interchange being constructed on that road between the HoCo line and the Beltway. And check out that interchange at the ICC and 29--what a confusing mess of lanes that looks to be!

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but the part of I-370 that currently exists (connecting I-270 to Shady Grove Rd. and the Shady Grove Metro) will still NOT be tolled, correct?

As far as I know it won't. But I'm interested to see if the planned M-83 (Midcounty Hwy) extension will be built along with the ICC. Otherwise, there seems to be a lack of street access between the Metro Station and Georgia Avenue interchanges.

What route designation does this road get if not I-370? Wikipedia says MD 200 but it has no source.
