Welcome to my web page! Because I love maps and traffic I'll be posting some of my favorite map sites and also some of my favorite alternate routes to take when traffic gets bad around the Baltimore area as well as updates on ongoing road construction that might affect your ride.
I've been working in radio for over 30 years and spent the first ten years working at radio stations in Upstate New York, San Diego and Memphis. In 1979 I got lost in Baltimore while making a trip from Washington to Boston. I fell in love with the city and starting planning on finding a job here. Finally in 1981 I got the break I wanted and came to Baltimore to work at the old V103. Since then I've worked at a number of radio stations in town and for 13 years I was the announcer in between shows on Channel 13. Since 1997 I've been here at WPOC and loving every minute of it. We have such great listeners and I really enjoy helping people get to work without too much trouble in the morning. I have 2 grown sons, Joe who is a Baltimore County Police Officer and Dan, who works for a Natural foods market ing firm. I call them the hippie and the cop! I also have a 3 year old grandson, Tony and a year old grandaughter, Chloe.
It's going to cost more to drive in Maryland starting July 1st. In addition to a 4 cent increase in the gas tax, tolls are going up for the bridges and tunnels.
Tolls at the Bay Bridge and Nice Bridge in Southern Maryland will increase from $4 to $6.
Tolls for the harbor crossings in Baltimore, meaning the Key Bridge, Fort McHenry Tunnel and Harbor Tunnel will increase from $3 to $4.
At the Harford and Cecil County line, the tolls for the JFK Highway and Hatem Bridge will increase from $6 to $8.
Tolls on the Inter-County Connector are not increasing.
I don't know about you, but I don't think the Hatem Bridge is worth 8 bucks!
Now this is a great science fair project!
