THE ISSUE: Noting an expected surge in traffic in coming years, a blue-ribbon panel has recommended the revival of a proposed bypass around Westminster, a $500 million project scrapped seven years ago by Gov. Parris N. Glendening as contrary to his Smart Growth anti-sprawl campaign. The panel, appointed by the Carroll County commissioners, unveiled the plan for an eight-mile road north of Route 140 in a report that includes details of a four-lane divided highway that would run from Leidy Road to Hughes Shop Road in the county seat. Do you think that nearly $500 million should be spent to build a bypass? Is there an alternative plan for controlling traffic through Westminster?
