|Governor O’Malley Announces $100 Million in Transportation Investment for the CCT Project|
On August 5, 2013 Governor Martin O’Malley, along with Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, and other key officials, announced that $100 Million has been budgeted to the CCT project to complete final design and right-of-way acquisition. The funds for the CCT project will enable the project to advance through the three critical steps of planning and project development, final design, and right-of-way acquisition. The $100 Million is part of nearly $650 Million in Transportation Investments that were announced for projects in Montgomery County. The funds are available due to the passage of the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013.
At the announcement, held near the entrance of the Bethesda Metrorail Station, Governor O’Malley emphasized the importance of the transportation investments. “Today’s announcement creates more than 9,700 jobs for Montgomery County, reduces traffic congestion and revitalizes communities”. Lt. Governor Brown emphasized the importance of “making an investment to support our growing economy, create thousands of jobs, and expand opportunities in our communities”.
