Toll revenue on the Intercounty Connector hit state
projections, but only because those were projections were adjusted downward, The
Washington Post reports, citing internal state records.
According to The Post article, the $39.6 million the ICC brought in last year was “almost dead-on” it’s latest projection but was “between $10 million to $32 million” less than the projections state lawmakers had in 2005.
Gaithersburg is the terminus for the ICC (MD-200), an east-west highway that connects Montgomery and Prince George's counties. The ICC opened in 2011 and is Maryland's first all-electronic toll road.
The Post reports that the highway cost $2.5 billion to build and that the Maryland Transit Authority had to increase its debt in order to do so.
Meanwhile, motorists and public officials complain that the roadway is underused and too expensive, Patch has reported.>>> See the full story at WashingtonPost.com
