Annapolis panel to discuss transportation projects

November 30, 2003

Annapolis-area residents can learn more about local transportation projects at a presentation and panel discussion Thursday morning at City Hall.

The event, "Managing the Impact: Annapolis Transportation Projects," will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in the Annapolis city council chambers. It is being put on by the Annapolis Regional Transportation Management Association, a nonprofit group that advocates improving transportation. Representatives of the Maryland State Highway Administration will discuss plans to replace the Weems Creek bridge and rehabilitate the College Creek bridge, starting early next year.

Construction work on the Rowe Boulevard bridge and Taylor Avenue intersections, and at the U.S. 50/Route 2 interchange will also be discussed.

The event will also include a panel discussion moderated by Jon Arason, Annapolis' planning director. Strategies for easing congestion - staggered commutes, ride sharing, public transit and signs - will be discussed.

Registration is required and limited to the first 100 people to sign up. The registration deadline is tomorrow. Register at www.artma.org, or call ARTMA at 410-269-7433.
