ICC To Be Extended As Part Of Development Deal

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — The Intercounty Connector will be extended to Route 1 and Maryland will build a new interchange on Interstate 95 as part of a deal between government officials and the developers of a mixed-use project in northern Prince George’s County.

Gov. Martin O’Malley and Prince George’s Executive Rushern Baker announced the agreement Tuesday with the developers of the project known as Konterra. The deal settles a lawsuit with the developers over land the state tried to obtain through eminent domain.

The developers will now donate the land in exchange for a variety of road improvements. Among them: the extension of the ICC east to Route 1 and a new interchange connecting I-95 with Contee Road Extended.

Konterra is expected to create 30,000 jobs and generate nearly $100 million in tax revenue.

    Oh goody, Now the criminals can get anywhere fast & be back home for drinks before the Cosby show is over or Sanford & son.

      I agree with the criminals getting around faster. I live off Rt. 1 and 100. Cars stolen and items from home robberies from this area are usually found in PG county. Now they have another route to take besides 95.
