Stop I-495 & I-270 Expansion 

Contribute to the Smart Growth Defense Fund to take a stand against Maryland's plans to expand I-495 & I-270 with private toll lanes! Together we can protect our environment and communities from a harmful highway project that would increase greenhouse gas emissions, worsen sprawl, and deepen inequities. Read about our recent legal action and past legal and technical commentsNEWIn March 2023, the highway consortium led by Transurban announced it is withdrawing its proposal to widen I-495 and I-270. In June 2023, Maryland Sierra Club with environmental and historic preservation groups asked a federal court to put the brakes on Maryland’s plan to build new toll lanes along the Capital Beltway and I-270. We will continue to work diligently with partners to oppose the project and advocate for equitable, multimodal transportation solutions.
