I 270 Tech Corridor[edit]

Should there be a section in this article referring to this technology business district, or should it be a separate article?

Future work[edit]

I-270 is currently in design for provision of an interchange at Watkins Mill Road (extended) as well as provision for ETL between I-370 to north of I-70. The timeline is still very much longterm: likely a 1-2 decades. I will add any publicly-available information as it is received. --Thisisbossi 20:00, 11 January 2007 (UTC)


When someone makes a map for this interstate, it'll need to show I-470/270 Spur/270Y. Its location isn't really described in the article. —Scott5114 19:02, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm familiar with the 270Y designation, but am not aware of an I470 designation which also does not appear in the location reference manual. Might you be able to provide a source of this designation? Thanks! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:39, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Proposed merge of I270Y into main article[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was merge. --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 08:23, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

To keep it simple: I believe that such a stub should remain within its parent article until such a time when it acquires enough information to stand as a decent Start-class article or preferably a B-class article. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:39, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree, it should be merged. Dough4872 02:29, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
I agree, even though I started the article.--RockRNC 21:50, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
I agree too, it's too short and straight forward for it to be on its own. TechMath 02:52, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.
