Intercounty Connector (ICC)/MD 200
HOW MUCH TIME WILL I SAVE IF I TRAVEL THE ICC?
Travel on the ICC saves users valuable time versus existing travel options on the local road network. A trip from Gaithersburg to Leisure World (near the intersection of Georgia Ave. and MD 28) via local roads takes up to 23 minutes during the morning rush hour. Typically, a driver would use Shady Grove Road, Muncaster Mill Road and Norbeck Road for the trip. Using the ICC, a driver can travel the same distance in approximately 7 minutes, a 16-minute time savings - or 70 percent less time. A trip from Laurel to Gaithersburg that once took more than 47 minutes in the morning saves a commuter more than 30 minutes with a 17-minute trip on the ICC.
