Private money built the new facility, and a private company will operate it.
Here’s what Maryland gets:
“Over $400 million in state revenue over the length of the partnership,” said Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.
The 35-year private-public partnership will also mean hundreds of local jobs.
The new Maryland House travel plaza will also have 40 gas pumps.
