In a March 26 blog post, says Neil J. Pedersen, administrator of the Maryland State Highway Administration, Michael Byrne asserted that the Intercounty Connector (ICC) was being funded in part by the stimulus bill. Pedersen wrote me a letter taking issue with Byrne’s reporting (PDF here).

Since Byrne works for the Baltimore City Paper and the piece in question appeared on that publication’s Web site, I called him to let him know about Pedersen’s concern for accuracy. Byrne assured me that the situation has been worked out. I don’t see a correction up there, so I’m issuing one here, just in case.
