Longmead Crossing in Layhill has been at the forefront of the InterCounty Connector debate. The 80's-era neighborhood was literally built around the right-of-way of the highway, while some residents prayed that the verdant strip of woods running through their subdivision would never be cleared. So much for that. Here are some photos I took last week of ICC construction in Longmead. I wonder if, when all the trees are removed, will I be able to stand at the west end of the ICC in Shady Grove and see all the way to Prince George's County?
