2009 Federal Omnibus Includes $712,500 for Waldorf-area Traffic Study


WASHINGTON (Feb. 25, 2009)—Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D) today announced the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act includes $712,500 funding to continuing examining ways to upgrade and widen U.S. 301 through the Waldorf area in both Charles and Prince George's Counties. U.S. 301 is a primary highway that experiences congestion due to intense commercial development and high volumes of commuter traffic.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act today. Senate action is expected to follow next week.

Mikulski is a senior member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Subcommittee.
