Jan. 15 public meeting scheduled on BRAC-related road improvements planned for U.S. Route 40 at MD 715

The Dagger Press blog reports that a public meeting is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jan. 15 to discuss upcoming improvements to the U.S. Route 40 (Pulaski Highway) at MD 715 (Short Lane/Maryland Boulevard) Interchange near Aberdeen. The meeting, sponsored by the Maryland Department of Transportation (DOT) and the State Highway Administration (SHA) will be held at Bakerfield Elementary School, 36 Baker Street, Aberdeen.

According to the report in The Dagger Press:

"The main objective of this project is to improve the operational characteristics of the interchange and provide additional capacity for the future Base Realignment and Closure expansion."

"Although there will be no formal presentation, citizens can acquaint themselves with the project, review studies made, and see the various options currently under consideration by walking through the displays at their own pace. There will be SHA representatives available to discuss the current plans and answer questions."

I just heard a nasty rumor that the BRAC has decided to bail from this area and to move to Delaware due to the recent tax hikes. Is there any truth to this that you know of?

Can't say that I've heard that one, but I did live in Delaware for seven years and they are really good and finding ways to eat Maryland's lunch.
