In 1984, an Information Public Meeting was held to present the preferred alternates, which were endorsed by the City of Frederick and Frederick County. A public hearing was held in May 1985 and comments received were supportive of the need to improve I-70 and the selected alternates. On April 30, 1987 a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was approved and Location Design Approval was granted by the Federal Highway Administration. Since that time, the State Highway Administration (SHA) has designed and constructed the new ramps at the US 15/ 340 interchange with I-70 and has designed and begun construction on the new ramps at the I-270 and I-70 interchange. SHA is currently in the process of designing the relocation of the I-70/ MD 355 interchange, as well as the improvements to the Reich's Ford Road/ I-70 interchange. The goal of the proposed projects is to relieve present and projected traffic capacity and safety concerns within the study corridor.
