DALLAS -- Traffic and toll revenues are ramping up slowly but steadily on Maryland Transportation Authority’s $2.4 billion, 19-mile Intercounty Connector built to relieve congestion in the Washington area. 

The all-electronic toll road, funded with $669 million of revenue bonds and $750 million of grant anticipation revenue vehicle bonds, is meeting expectations, the MDTA said in a report this week as the toll road approaches its second full year of operation. Revenues are less than anticipated when the road was first proposed, but transportation authority officials said the traffic volumes and collections are in line with later projections.
