For Martin Luther King Day, we hear from an artist who makes civil rights heroes leap off the page.
Gov. Larry Hogan would like to widen the Beltway and Interstate 270 in Montgomery County, and has suggested that this could be accomplished through a public-private partnership supported by optional toll lanes.
The idea does not sit well with many Montgomery County officials and politicians, who fear the project will encroach on neighborhoods that lie alongside these roads. A newly-filed bill in the House of Delegates would assure the county gets to veto any toll road plan it doesn’t like. Is it a necessary measure? Or does it not go far enough to make sure local voices are heard in the great roadway debate?
