WHEREAS,, the citizens of Southern Maryland feel that they
have not received their fair share of the road funds since the
construction of the Crain Highway more than twenty years
ago, in 1928, and

WHEREAS, the Legislature has authorized the building of
toll bridges and toll roads in the State of Maryland, and

WHEREAS, the people of the Southern Maryland Counties are
perfectly willing and desirous of paying a reasonable toll for
the purpose of defraying the cost of construction of a bridge
from Benedict across the Patuxent River to Calvert County,

WHEREAS, in order to determine the practicability and the
economic feasibility of such a project it is essential that ac-
curate information in connection therewith be obtained; now,
therefore, be it

Resolved, That the State Roads Commission of Maryland is
hereby directed to make the identical type of study and report
in connection with the proposed construction of a bridge
from or near Benedict in Charles County across the Pa-
tuxent River to Calvert County, which was made on the Sus-
quehanna and Potomac River bridges and which is now being
made on the proposed Chesapeake Bay Bridge by competent
engineers acceptable to prospective bond purchasers, to deter-
mine the estimated cost of the bridge, the estimated number
of vehicles which would use the bridge and the estimated
amount of toll revenue to be produced therefrom so that it may
be ascertained:

(1) If the proposed Patuxent River Bridge project would
be self-liquidating;

(2) if it is not self-liquidating how much money the State
would have to contribute through,

(a) a special bond issue, or

(b) from gasoline or motor vehicle taxes towards the
cost of the construction and/or the maintenance
and operation thereof; and be it further

Resolved, that this report be made to the Governor of the
State of Maryland and the General Assembly of Maryland
not later than January 5, 1949.

Approved June 1, 1948.
