If there was no BAltimore Beltway, or Tunnels through the harbor, all hell would break looses. Howvere, many rural highways (not interstates) are choked. Through HArford County, Rt24 has around 80,000 people living within 5 miles from this road. It is 2 lanes wide, and clogged at all hours. The road that is congested is also around 10 miles long. HAve fun! Oh and highways that were in the planned town of Columbia are the worse-possibly worse that the DC beltway. But have highways helped YOUR town?
