Voices were raised and tempers flared as more than 700 Pasadena residents packed the auditorium of Chesapeake Senior High School for more than three hours Wednesday night to oppose a Mountain Road bypass.Nearly all the seats in the auditorium were filled, and many people were willing to stand to show their resistance to County Councilman Thomas W. Redmond's plan to build a 2 1/2 -mile bypass."It's wrong," said William L. Long. "You're taking people's homes. That's stupid.""It's a shame!" Ray Jacobs roared at Mr. Redmond.

The politicians are fighting over Mountain Road: Should Anne Arundel County spend money to widen it or to study building a bypass?Four state legislators have asked Anne Arundel County Executive John G. Gary to take $200,000 away from a planned study of a Mountain Road bypass and spend it, instead, to add a lane to the eastbound and westbound sides of Mountain Road between Route 100 and Lake Shore Drive.The legislators -- Republican Dels. John R. Leopold and Victoria L. Schade and Democratic Sen. Philip C. Jimeno and Del. Joan Cadden -- said they are lobbying for their proposal because they envision too many obstacles to the $12 million bypass project, a 2 1/2 -mile, two-lane parallel route linking Magothy Bridge Road to Mountain Road between South Carolina and Maryland avenues in Lake Shore.
