An $18.2 million project to unclog a crisscross of Annapolis-area highways won't be finished until fall, state and county officials said last week. Work on the interchange of three major arteries in Parole -- U.S. 50, Route 450 and Solomons Island Road -- started in April 2003 and was expected to be done this spring. But officials say it's only about half-finished. The State Highway Administration attributed delays there and at several other long-term road projects to rain in the spring and summer of last year.

Maryland officials are considering six possible designs for upgrading busy Route 3 in western Anne Arundel and northeastern Prince George's counties - a road where traffic is expected to increase 70 percent by the year 2025. Designs for the highway, which range in complexity from no major changes to to a road with overpasses and bike lanes, were displayed last week by the State Highway Administration. The state is studying a nine-mile stretch of the highway from U.S. 50 to Route 32. The study represents the latest effort to address transportation needs on Route 3. The state looked at establishing an interstate connection between Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis in the early 1980s, but the idea was abandoned because of strong opposition from residents in Bowie and Crofton.
