Maryland Officials Balk at Toll, Prefer General Funding

December 1, 2009

Speaking of highways, Maryland officials are balking at proposed $6 tolls for the expensive Intercounty Connector (ICC) in suburban Washington, D.C. They’re now discussing capping the tolls at $3, relying on general revenues to build the rest of the $2.4 billion 14-mile road. If officials are worried that the beneficiaries won’t pay the toll for what it costs to build the road, then why build it?
