Who is CABE?
  • MD is pushing an $11 billion plan to expand I-495 and I-270 for as many as four for-profit tollways (aka Luxury Lanes). They claim it will end rush hour congestion without costing taxpayers a dime.
  • $28 - 48 rush hour tolls have been charged on Northern Virginia's I-495 and I-66 Luxury Lanes.
  • Luxury Lanes are more likely to monetize congestion for Wall Street than relieve it for us.

  • CABE is pushing back. We're a growing coalition of civic associations, taxpayers, and other organizations demanding better, affordable commuter options for suburban Maryland.

  • Contact your elected officials. Use our contact list. Tell them to resist MDOT's push for Luxury Lanes and protect taxpayers, communities, homes, and the environment.
