Update: Deadlines Extended for Public Input on the I-495 and I-270
Managed Lanes Study's Draft Environmental Impact Statement

The State Highway Administration (SHA) and Montgomery County have extended until November 9 and October 16, respectively, the deadlines for public comments on the I-495 and I-270 Managed Lanes Study’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). 

The DEIS includes traffic, environmental, engineering and financial analyses of the Build Alternatives and the No Build Alternative.  The DEIS process provides an opportunity for residents, interest groups and other agencies to review and provide comment on the proposed federal action and the adverse and beneficial environmental impacts and proposed mitigation for unavoidable impacts.

The SHA held public hearings in August and September and continues to accept comments by voicemail, email or hard copy until November 9.  The Montgomery County Council and County Executive Elrich jointly are seeking public input on the DEIS.  The Council and County Executive ask County residents who testified at the SHA public hearings, or who send correspondence to the SHA, to also send copies of their comments and any attachments to County representatives (for use in developing the County's position).  County residents can submit feedback and testimony to the County by email at managed.lanes@montgomerycountymd.gov.  Residents without access to the internet can mail their testimony or comments to the attention of Glenn Orlin at the Council Office Building (100 Maryland Ave., 4th floor, Rockville, Md., 20850).
