drawings and acquiring rights-of-way. For several years, this project
has been under intensive study by the State Roads Commission and
meeting to fix location have been held with Bethlehem Steel Company,
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company and others. This project will
tie together and make possible the orderly development of highly im-
portant industrial areas in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties.

With regard to the northern Bay crossing, the fixing of the location is
vital so that it may fit into the vast freeway network now in the making
for Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties. Unfortunately, the refer-
endum decision on the parallel Bay bridge will defer positive action on
all Bay crossings at this time. However, it is hoped that after the
November election a definite start will be made toward making the
northern crossing a reality. A definite northern crossing is necessary
for the orderly growth of the northeastern portion of the greater Balti-
more area. Mr. Funk, the Chairman-Director of the State Roads Com-
mission, will discuss this subject in more detail on June 23rd before
the Kiwanis Club of Baltimore.

Finally, this statement does not mean I budge one-inch from my
position with regard to the parallel Bay bridge. I consider it extremely
necessary that we do not retreat from the rapidly growing needs for
traffic capacity at the present bridge location. At the same time, every
assistance should be given to the greater Baltimore traffic requirements.

I hope the citizens of Maryland realize that immediate action on both
the parallel span and the northern crossing will depend on how they
vote in the November general election.
