The crossing of Maryland Routes 2, 408 and 422 in southern Anne Arundel County's Lothian has long been a troublesome intersection for local drivers. Governed only by a flashing red light and a stop sign for east-west traffic and a flashing yellow for the north-south flow, this crossroads has been the scene of more than a few accidents caused by drivers who plowed through without heeding the signals.The State Highway Administration announced late last month that it wants to remedy the situation by replacing the four-way intersection with a traffic circle, or "roundabout," at a cost of about $175,000.

One by one, they came to the microphone and made their case: The Maryland Renaissance Festival is fun, but it doesn't belong in a rural community.

Organizers say the festival has become a victim of its own success and needs more room to accommodate traffic, revelers and vendors than the 130-acre site can provide.
