The ICC is Maryland’s first all-electronic toll road where tolls are collected at highway speeds using E-ZPass® technology, as vehicles pass beneath tolling structures. Tolls vary with a higher toll charged during peak hours and a lower toll charged during off-peak and overnight hours.
Construction of the ICCThe ICC was a multi-year project and was built in five sections. See a route map of the Intercounty Connector.
- MD 355 (Frederick Road)
- Shady Grove Metro Station Access Road
- MD 97 (Georgia Avenue)
- MD 182 (Layhill Road)
- MD 650 (New Hampshire Avenue)
- US 29 (Columbia Pike/Briggs Chaney Road)
- Interstate 95
Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan were both instrumental in gaining approval for the construction of the new road. They developed support for the project by showing that building the ICC would create job opportunities and provide better access to employment around the region. The ICC also improves homeland security by providing an additional evacuation route.
