ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan has announced a $5 million study to explore a potential new Chesapeake Bay crossing.
Hogan said Tuesday the Maryland Transportation Authority Board voted last week for the Tier 1 National Environmental Policy Act study.
Hogan also Tuesday unveiled Maryland's new license plate design, which will feature the Maryland flag front and center. The Maryland Department of Transportation's Motor Vehicle Administration will start issuing the new plate on Sept. 26.
The new plate will replace the War of 1812 plate, but customers who want to keep their existing plates do not need to get the new plate. Those who want to replace their existing license plates will pay the current $20 replacement cost.
It is standard practice to update the Maryland license plate every few years.
