Lawmakers press Maryland DOT on highway project bidders

Key members of the General Assembly served notice on Monday that they intend to exercise rigorous oversight over the Hogan administration’s plan to add express toll lanes to the Capital Beltway and Interstate 270.

In a letter to Transportation Secretary Greg Slater, the legislators demanded a detailed history of the four firms that expressed interest in bidding for the $9 billion to $11 billion contract, their track record on big-ticket projects, and how they would handle disputes. [Maryland Matters]
