DRIVING SOUTH from York, Pa., on Interstate 83, you pass billboards, potholes, more billboards, then more potholes. But when you cross into Maryland, you wind through lush, rolling valleys on smoother highways. Maryland sells itself. A visitors center in this section of I-83, where travelers could find bearings, brochures and clean bathrooms, seems an ideal way to lure tourists to attractions in northern and central Maryland.About a million people stop at the 11 welcome centers the state already operates.

The commute to work from Pennsylvania and northern Baltimore County is about to get longer.Starting early next month, highway crews will resurface a 14-mile stretch of Interstate 83 between Shawan Road and the Pennsylvania line and replace the northbound bridge over Quaker Bottom Road.More than 48,000 people travel I-83 each day to get to jobs in Hunt Valley, Towson and Baltimore, say State Highway Administration officials.For the next several months, motorists will have to contend with lane and ramp closures as crews remove and resurface I-83, upgrade ramps and guardrails and add grooved pavement along the shoulder to warn motorists when they have left the travel lane.

A minivan traveling on Interstate 83 in northern Baltimore County yesterday veered into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a flatbed truck, Maryland State Police said. The impact of the crash left the minivan's driver trapped in her mangled vehicle and caused as much as 150 gallons of diesel fuel to spill onto the roadway, police said. A three-mile stretch of I-83 was closed for about three hours as crews mopped up the fuel, police said. The minivan driver was conscious when emergency workers freed her. She was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was treated yesterday for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Dave Fitzgerald was taking a cigarette break at the Exxon service station in Parkton yesterday afternoon when he looked up and saw a sickly yellowish cloud rising above the trees over Interstate 83. "That can't be good at all," the 18- year-old cashier recalled telling himself. Within minutes, emergency vehicles arrived in response to reports of a chemical explosion and spill in a truck and shut down the Baltimore-Harrisburg Expressway in both directions. Southbound I-83 reopened about 3:30 p.m., but the gridlock on the northbound lanes created a rush-hour headache for commuters and travelers that lasted into early this morning.

No VFW highway on I-83The House Ways and Means Committee yesterday killed a bill to rename a section of Interstate 83 from the Baltimore Beltway to the state line for the Veterans of Foreign Wars.The committee rejected the idea by a vote of 17 to 4. The bill sought to have 23 miles of I-83 designated as Veterans of Foreign Wars Memorial Parkway.The State Highway Administration recommended that the committee reject the bill because of its cost -- $50,000 for two signs -- and because Maryland already has a highway designated for veterans.
