The Maryland State Highway Administration has received funding for the planning and conceptual design phase to upgrade the existing Scenic Overlook along northbound I-270 in Frederick County, Maryland to provide an Environmentally friendly Welcome Center that would have low or no impact upon the environment. A design competition is being held to stimulate a variety of innovative design concepts for a facility that is intended to be independent from the need to rely on traditional energy, water supply and wastewater treatment technologies. It is the intent that this facility, when constructed, will be self-contained and self-sustaining.
