O’Malley To Make Announcement At ICC Interchange

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley and other elected leaders will be at the site of the future interchange between Interstate 95 and the Intercounty Connector for an economic development announcement.

O’Malley will be joined Tuesday by Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker to detail what the governor’s office calls “high-end development and highway improvements.”

The area surrounding the I-95 and ICC interchange has been slated for a large mixed-use development called Konterra. The Washington Post reported earlier in April that the state has agreed to pay $74 million to settle a lawsuit with the developers of Konterra. The state will pay for an additional interchange and other road improvements.

The ICC will connect I-95 in Prince George’s with Interstate 270 in Montgomery County.

    What the heck? Spending more money on the ICC? No one even use’s it!. They spent over 87 Billion on that dumb thing. And they have not even made 0.001% back in toll’s. Because the prices of gas. Who the heck is going to pay more money then they pay to fill up there tank? It’s cheaper to take the old way and save on the toll because paying for them both gas and toll i dont think so.

    I can vision the crime rates zooming as thugs use this road for a get in get out crime opportunity. Then the government will build some section 8 housing nearby to accommodate the thieves. AT, There is one coming soon to your neighborhood.
