Every Anne Arundel County executive since the first has had to deal with it. It sparked countless community meetings, studies and tension-filled debates in the 1970s and '80s. And in the '90s, it pitted two of the county's largest and most organized communities against each other. But tomorrow night, after a more than three-decade saga, officials are scheduled to open the final section of East-West Boulevard, a 2.8-mile road linking the county's two major north-south thoroughfares - Veterans and Ritchie highways.

EVERY suburbanite expects to be able to drive freely about his community without running into jams. He also expects that his streets will be tranquil oases free of car and truck traffic like you find in the cities.Those expectations were realistic two decades ago. Increasingly, they aren't. There are far too many people and far too many cars in the suburbs for the existing road network.Building roads doesn't placate the populace, either. Rather than welcoming new or widened existing roads, residents in large numbers oppose these projects.
