Authority to hold meetings on I-95 toll plaza

The Maryland Transportation Authority will hold two public meetings this month to answer questions and receive comments on the placement of a new toll plaza along Interstate 95 in Cecil County.

The meetings, both from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., will be held June 16 at Elkton High School  and June 18 at Perryville High.

The meetings are part of a study that began last spring to study traffic patterns in the I-95 corridor and to determine the best locations at which to collect tolls on the Kennedy Memorial Highway. The study will also look at the best ways to collect the tolls.

 The authority said there will be no formal presentation at the meetings but said staff members will be present to answer questions and take comments. The study, which is described in detail at the authority's web site, is expected to be completed  this fall.

It should be moved to the State Line @ Delaware, after the exit for MD 279, as retribution for Delaware's dubious placement of their Del. Tpke. toll facility. MD residents in Harford and Cecil Counties should be able to zip up and down I-95 (and US 40, for that matter) on a daily basis without paying those tolls at the Susquehanna just as Delaware residents are able to zip along I-95 within their own state without paying that silly toll. Folks who live in the area and travel between Delaware and Maryland regularly already know how to get around the DE toll, and they'd use the same get-around to avoid the MD toll too.
