Take the High Road
Take the Monorail
Today, Montgomery and Frederick County residents find themselves
at a crossroads. Our main transportation corridor, I-270, has reached
capacity and its persistent congestion has become a drag on our
counties’ business, quality of life, and environment.
Plans are being drawn to widen the highway. The argument has been presented as this:
we can have more pavement or more traffic. We would likely get both.
But there is a supplemental option, which promises to expand our transportation
network without requiring any losses of private or conserved property and
reduce the need for future lane expansion: MONORAIL.
Around the world MONORAILS have been shuttling commuters in high
volumes for decades. Riding high on narrow concrete piers, they are quick
to construct and require only a minimal footprint. And because they are
powered by electricity, they are efficient, clean, and quiet as well.
TAKE THE HIGH ROAD. TAKE THE MONORAIL.
