MNPS received an undated copy of a letter
from that the Army Corps of Engineers has determined that the proposed Cross County Connector (in Charles County) -- the CCC -- does not comply with Corps regulations.
Brief summary of the ACE's evaluation of the CCC:
- Proposed project would have a direct adverse impact on non-tidal forested wetlands; stream channels and waterways; fish and wildlife; and water quality
- There are potential practicable alternatives, such as utilizing existing roads
- May result in substantial cumulative adverse impacts to Mattawoman Creek
- The proposal has been determined to be contrary to the public interest
