SoMd State Delegation asks Hogan for TJ Bridge funds

California, MD- The Southern Maryland State Delegation of Delegate Matt Morgan, Senator Jack Bailey, Delegate Brian Crosby and Delegate Jerry Clark addressed a letter to the Governor of Maryland Thursday, May 9, 2019 for consideration of funding for the Thomas Johnson Bridge.

In the letter the Delegation references the money allocated to the I-495/I-270 expansion in Montgomery County, MD and the heated debates and protest over it. The Southern Maryland Delegation is asking the Governor to consider the money allocated for that project moved to the TJ Bridge project.

The TJ Bridge replacement project has been in the planning stages since 2007 and the Delegation urges the Governor to continue to recognize the need for this project to help alleviate congestion in our region.

Below is the letter signed by the Delegation to Governor Hogan

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
