Widening Projects Abound

I-270 is not the only road widening project under consideration by the state. The Maryland Department of Transportation is proposing to widen I-97 between Baltimore and Annapolis and to widen part of the Baltimore Beltway. Howard County Executive Ken Ulman wants the state to widen US-29 near Columbia. And the state is spending $830 million to install Express Toll Lanes on I-95 northeast of Baltimore.

So where are the protests from the Baltimore Sun against these projects? Where is the opposing petition drive from D.C. blogs? And where is the money-raising campaign from Action Committee for Transit?

Could it be that only MoCo road widening projects are evil?
