After the meeting from MDOT on Thursday in Carroll County about the proposed/planned intersection changes at MD 140 and MD 91 Delegate Joshua Stonko (District 42C) sent the follow to the Carroll County Observer:
I appreciate your patience. I wanted to make sure that I fully understood the plan before providing a public statement. I am comfortable stating that I am adamantly against the proposed plan and believe it creates far more problems than it solves. I am voicing my concerns directly to MDOT and the individuals in charge of the budget.
I want to thank everyone from the county that took the time to show up last night to voice their concerns with the plan.
Delegate Joshua Stonko
Other elected officials attended the meeting on this past Thursday (State Senator West – District 42, Delegate Bouchat – District 5, Commissioner Kiler – District 2, Commissioner Gordon – District 3 and Carroll County State’s Attorney Shoemaker) but at this point I have not seen any official statement from those elected officials or others at this time. If any release statements I will be sure to share those with the community and followers.
The Observer has been vocal about this project in articles and videos and after the meeting this past Thursday I can say that my mind has not been changed and I am still not currently in favor of the current plan for our community (as a resident in Gamber this traffic pattern change does affect me and my family).
When a new meeting date is set for the community by MDOT The Observer will share that information as soon as possible. The Observer will plan to attend and capture content from that future meeting.
Here are past articles from The Observer on this topic:
