Citizens for Traffic Relief is a nonprofit grassroots coalition of Maryland citizens, businesses, and nonprofit organization focused on investing in Maryland’s transportation network to improve our quality of life and expand opportunity for everyone in Maryland.
We support Maryland’s plan to use private funding to add congestion managed express lanes to I-270 and on the Beltway in order to increase travel options, reduce delays, and improve transit service in these key corridors. Providing a reliable option that is free for transit and other high occupancy vehicles will encourage more people to carpool, ride a bus, and further reduce traffic on both the managed and unmanaged travel lanes. As a result, this plan will benefit everyone in Maryland.

Suburban Maryland consistently ranks as one of the worst places in the entire country for traffic congestion. While Northern Virginia has recently invested billions in transportation infrastructure with billions more planned, Maryland continues falling further and further behind.
As a result, economic growth in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties has stagnated as more and more companies seek to locate in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Maryland needs a better transportation network to remain regionally competitive and ensure Maryland residents have access to more economic opportunities and higher paying jobs.
Thankfully, Maryland has a plan.
The Maryland Traffic Relief Plan would use private funding to add two congestion managed lanes in each direction on the Beltway and I-270, relieving congestion, increasing travel options, improving transit service, incentivizing carpooling, and saving money.
To ensure Maryland moves forward with this vital project, Maryland politicians need to hear from YOU! Let them know you stand with the majority of Maryland residents in support of the Traffic Relief Plan today.
