Group assured road won't be widened at exit

County zoning representatives have assured the Generals Highway Council of Civic Associations that neither the state nor the county plans to widen the road near the I-97 exit.

Three analysts last week attended a meeting of the group, responding to more than half of the council's lengthy list of questions about growth in the area.

"People were extremely relieved that they said there will be absolutely no change in the widening of Old Generals Highway, no new ramps directing traffic off I-97," said Lucille Pomraning, the council's zoning chairwoman. About 50 people attended the meeting.

Council members had heard rumors that the state had plans to expand the historic portion of the road to a dual-lane highway and asked the county in January to inform them of long- and short-term plans for their area.

The association includes residents from the Annapolis Mall area to Veterans Highway and from the Severn River to Route 450.

The county representatives brought zoning maps that showed how much of the area is already developed, as well as planned expansion. They alerted the group to one new development in the area, called Stuart's Station, to be located near Bestgate Road. The development is slated to include nine units.

The council comprises 22 community groups, as well as several dozen members who live along the highway and are not residents of any particular community.
