Govt. Hogan promises to reject any unfair card + ring road closure

Happy Laurier Saturday! Here’s everything going on in town today.

First of all, the weather forecast for the day:

Sun and some clouds. High: 54 Low: 28.

Here are the four most popular stories today in Laurel:

  1. A partisan battle to redraw the cards of the State Congress will be in the foreground when Maryland lawmakers get together for one special legislative session Monday. Democrats are ahead of the game, with enough majorities in the two chambers of the General assembly. This could rule out Republicans’ complaints and override a threatened veto through Governor Larry Hogan, Who said he would reject any “unfair” card. (Baltimore Sun)
  2. Laurel residents who can predict traveling via the ring road in Virginia this weekend, maybe need check the news and update their travel plans. A big weekend closure is scheduled for the southbound bypass in Virginia with lots of full stops overnight on I-66. Therefore, the I-295 / DC-295 Corridor Project continues with closures throughout the weekend. In Prince George County, there is now a off-peak construction project on MD-223 Woodyard Road between Sherwood Drive and Victoria Drive with lane closures scheduled daily and Saturdays until next year. Be alerted of public service relocations with Restricted lanes along Riverdale Road between 58th Street and Veterans’ Parkway. (OMCP)
  3. Laurel Dutch Country Farmers Market has been close about a week ago by the Prince George County Department of Health due to employees and customers not meeting the county’s indoor mask mandate. According to a representative, the market will be temporarily closed until further notice. (FOX 5 CC)
  4. Marylanders and their families are invited to join Governor Larry Hogan and First Lady Yumi Hogan for the return of the Holiday Open House Saturday December 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to Government House in Annapolis. The event is free, open to the public, and no reservation is required. Face masks will be required to enter. The.
