9/20/2017MDOT SHA BEGINS $100 MILLION I-270 INNOVATIVE CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROJECT IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Work Will Add New Lanes on Southbound I-270 at the I-495 Outer Loop Merge

(September 19, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is starting initial work on its $100 million innovative congestion relief project on I-270 announced by Governor Larry Hogan in April to provide some quick improvements for motorists. MDOT SHA will resurface and restripe the southbound I-270 west spur which connects the main line of I-270 with the outer loop of I-495 (Capital Beltway). This work will eliminate the existing left lane drop where I-270 meets I-495.

Crews are permitted to work and close lanes on the outer loop of I-495 and southbound I-270 during the following times:


Outer loop of I-495 (westbound), Sunday through Thursday nights:
• Single lane closures starting at 9 p.m.
• Double or triple lane closures starting at 11 p.m.
• All lanes open to traffic by 5 a.m.

Southbound I-270:

• Single lane closures during the day (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
• Double lane closures starting at 8 p.m.
• All lanes open to traffic by 5 a.m.

Single lane closures are also scheduled on southbound I-270 on Saturday and Sunday mornings between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Additional lane closures and work hours may be needed to expedite the work and keep the project on schedule. For more information about this project, click here.

Once complete late fall, this phase of work will extend three lanes from southbound I-270 to the outer loop of I-495. The work also includes modifications to signage along I-495 and I-270 consistent with the new lane configuration.

Single lane closures are also scheduled on southbound I-270 on Saturday and Sunday mornings between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Additional lane closures and work hours may be needed to expedite the work and keep the project on schedule. For more information about this project, click here.

Once complete late fall, this phase of work will extend three lanes from southbound I-270 to the outer loop of I-495. The work also includes modifications to signage along I-495 and I-270 consistent with the new lane configuration.

Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands. Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting www.md511.org for live traffic updates.

4/19/2017GOVERNOR LARRY HOGAN ANNOUNCES ADVANCEMENT OF I-270 CONGESTION RELIEF PROJECT

Will Save Drivers up to 30 Minutes on Morning Commute

Governor Larry Hogan today announced advancement of the state’s $100 million I-270 Innovative Congestion Management Project, which will save drivers up to 30 minutes on their morning commute southbound from Frederick to I-495. The winning design-build team, comprised of 16 firms, was selected following a competitive bidding process to deliver a modern adaptable highway by creating an automated smart traffic system that will move the most vehicles fastest and farthest on I-270 between I-70 and I-495. The governor was joined by Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett, State Highway Administrator Gregory Slater, and representatives from the winning firms for the announcement.

The project breaks 14 bottlenecks and adds 23 new lane miles, more than 25 real-time traffic communication signs, and more than 30 intelligent signals that work together to deliver dynamic traffic management along the entire I-270 corridor. Currently, the I-270 corridor carries a range of 79,400 – 261,200 vehicles each day. By 2030, daily volumes will increase to 107,000 – 290,000 vehicles. Reducing congestion is key to making travel reliable, improving quality of life, and spurring economic development in Frederick County, Montgomery County, and the entire Washington region.

In 2016, Governor Hogan provided $100 million in new funding for the I-270 Innovative Congestion Management Project to improve travel times throughout the 34.4-mile I-270 corridor. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration used an innovative procurement method never used before by a state transportation department.

The procurement used a fixed price of $100 million and performance criteria of moving the most vehicles farthest and fastest. This open and innovative approach allowed the private sector to use its talents and creativity to develop out-of-the-box solutions. The automated smart traffic system uses infrastructure, technology and information to deliver the time savings.

During the 2016 legislative session, the General Assembly passed the “Road Kill Bill,” which threatened 66 of the top 73 priority transportation projects in the state. Governor Hogan immediately opposed this legislation, and called for its full and immediate repeal. On April 11, Governor Hogan signed the repeal legislation, ensuring that all 73 projects can move forward.

In Montgomery County, key projects are back on track and moving forward, including: $130 million to build the new I-270/Watkins Mill Road interchange; $6 million to identify capacity improvements for I-495 from the I-270 spur to the Virginia Line; $12.8 million to construct new intersection improvements at MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) at Jones Bridge Road; $7 million to identify safety and operations improvements for the MD 28/MD 198 corridor; and $10.7 million for right-of-way acquisition and engineering to move forward the capacity and safety improvement project along MD 124 in partnership with Montgomery County.

Final design is underway this spring with construction to begin this fall. The entire project will be completed in 2019.



 
1/1/2016Engineering underway. Construction to begin during current fiscal year.
