ABERDEEN, Md. (AP) — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says Maryland is spending nearly $9 million to help ease traffic congestion tied to the growth of Aberdeen Proving Ground.
Brown said Monday that $7.6 million will pay for land acquisition at the intersection of Route 22 and Paradise Road.
He says the state will spend $1 million to relocate utilities at Route 22 and Old Post Road.
Brown says it will take another $20 million to $25 million to complete the intersection upgrades.
Brown chairs the Governor’s Committee on Base Realignment and Closure.
Military base closure and consolidation moves brought 8,000 jobs to Aberdeen from 2005 to 2011.
