Accelerate Maryland Partners LLC (AM Partners), led by Transurban and Macquarie Capital, has been selected by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), MDOT State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) as the developer to perform Predevelopment Work and deliver the American Legion Bridge I-270 to I-70 Relief Plan, which will expand transit options, ensure trip reliability and reduce some of the worst congestion in the nation.

In collaboration with Maryland, stakeholders and residents, AM Partners will advance the American Legion Bridge I-270 to I-70 Relief Plan which would add two high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes to approximately 37 miles of highway from the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Virginia, across and including the American Legion Bridge and on I-270 to I-70 in Maryland.

The new Express Lanes in Maryland will connect to extensions now advancing on the I-495 Virginia Express Lanes network, including the 495 Northern Extension (NEXT) project.

Pending the Maryland Board of Public Works approval of AM Partners as the developer in Q4 FY21, a final concession agreement, financial close and construction work is expected in late 2022.
