Designated as a top transportation priority by the state of Maryland, the 18-mile Intercounty Connector (ICC) is an east-west tolled highway north of Washington, D.C.
The ICC links existing and proposed development areas between the I-270/I-370 and I-95/U.S. 1 corridors within central and eastern Montgomery County and northwestern Prince George's County with a state-of-the-art, multimodal east-west highway.
The new roadway increases community mobility and safety; facilitates the movement of goods and people to and from economic centers; provides cost-effective transportation infrastructure; helps restore the natural, human and cultural environments from past development impacts in the project area; and provides additional mobility.
The first segment of the ICC from I-370 at Shady Grove to MD 97/Georgia Avenue in Rockville/Olney opened February 23, 2011. The roadway from Georgia Avenue to I-95 (Exit 31) at Laurel opened November 22, 2011. The roadway opened to US 1 on November 9, 2014.
