State cancels contract solicitation for travel plazas
The Maryland Transportation Authority has canceled its bid solicitation for a contract to redevelop and manage its two travel plazas along the toll stretch of Interstate 95 in Northeast Maryland.
For more than four years, the authority has been planning to seek a private vendor to redevelop the aging Maryland House and Chesapeake House on the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway. But earlier today, the state abruptly canceled its request for proposals,
"The Maryland Tranportation Authority has determined that it is in the best interest of the State to cancel this solicitation" was the only explanation.
A call to the authority seeking additional information was not immediately returned.
