WASHINGTON (AP) — A second bridge over the Potomac River connecting Virginia and Maryland north of Washington will be considered during a meeting between elected officials and transportation planners.

The Washington Post reported on Monday the idea to ease traffic in the region has been debated since the 1950s, and the North Capital Region Transportation Planning Board will consider listing the bridge project at its July 19 meeting.

Board member and Loudoun County supervisor Ron Meyer says the bridge is his “number one” for the northern Virginia region, and that he thinks there’s a disconnect between Montgomery County’s political class and commuters.

Montgomery County Council president Roger Berliner says Maryland’s transportation dollars would be better spent widening Interstate 270 and the American Legion bridge, which links Maryland’s Montgomery County and Virginia’s Fairfax County.
