White Marsh Boulevard Construction for I-95 Express Toll Lanes

At $142.6 million, the project is expected to create 400 new jobs.

Expect construction at Interstate 95 and White Marsh Boulevard, also known as Maryland Route 43, to last at least another two years.

The I-95 Express Toll Lanes project at MD 43 is underway, the Maryland Transportation Authority announced this week. 

This portion of the project involves widening I-95, replacing the MD 43 bridges over I-95 and attaching planned toll lanes to MD 43. When complete, drivers may travel on existing lanes of I-95 at no additional cost, or may use express lanes by paying a toll, according to an MDTA release.

The White Marsh portion of the project comes at a $142.6 million cost and is expected to create 400 new jobs, officials stated.

The total project, which stretches from north of White Marsh along I-95 to south of the Interstate 895/Moravia Road interchange, comes at a $1.03 billion cost and is expected to be finished by 2014.

Would you be willing to pay an extra toll to use an express lane? Tell us in the comments.

So do we need a big banner ad or something clarifying that no tax dollars are used on this project? Because no one seems to see where that is stated multiple times above.

Here's an idea, use money raised for a specific purpose for said purpose. We all know THAT hasn't happened, furthermore this is a further cost of the ridiculous over development ( which most of us didn't want in the first place). The above objections are to Owe Malley's forced programs (fully justified IMHO), NOT THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE IN ANY WAY

Al, Even omalley admits he has to dig into other wells for funds.. Don't you believe him? You really need to do your homework instead of listening to their words that spell "LIES".. I was there at one time. A smile and handshake voter also. NO MORE.!!

This construction will actually increase traffic on the free lanes in hopes that motorists will choose the high speed toll lanes. It's all about "revenue". The new sky ramps from I-95 to the beltway have already made traffic worse, especially during the afternoon rush northbound. The sky ramp torwards Towson backs up onto I-95 N

Yes, no tax dollars were used on this project but the MdTA is penalizing anyone who works in Perry Hall and has to travel through the tunnel to work with tripled toll rates. So pockets are still being picked just in a different fashion.
