Alternative offered to building bypasses

I fail to understand why the State Highway Administration and Carroll County government do not see the obvious answer to the Westminster, Hampstead and Manchester bypass situation.

If you extend Interstate 795 to go between Route 140 and Route 30 almost to Route 97 then head north to Hanover with the appropriate exit, you delete the need for any bypass.

Because the highway would then be an interstate, federal funding would then become more available. The possibility of charging a toll before crossing into Carroll County should also be considered.

This is the most logical and cost effective way of relieving the stress on both of these highways.
