Maryland Gas Tax To Fund Two Major Road Projects

Play associated audio

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a bill into law that will raise gasoline taxes in the state starting this summer. A little more than half of that money will go to mass transit, while the rest to road construction projects.

The gas tax will fund two major road projects in Montgomery County, one in Prince George's County, and another in Frederick County.

The plan allocates $125 million to construction on the new interchange to Watkins Mill Road from Interstate 270 in Gaithersburg, which is the most expensive single road project being funded by the tax increase.

Also in Montgomery County, Route 29 northbound will be widened to three lanes from Seneca Drive to Route 175 in Howard County. In Prince George's County, a new interchange will be built on route 210 at Kerby Hill and Livingston Roads. And up in Frederick County, Route 15 will get a new interchange at Monocacy Boulevard.
