County Executive Ike Leggett in his fiscal 2019 capital budget proposalrecommended the county fund about $124 million over the next six years to build the proposed four-lane parkway between Veirs Mill Road and Parklawn Road in the North Bethesda area.

Now council members Marc Elrich, George Leventhal, Hans Riemer and Roger Berliner said Wednesday they’re looking to use those funds for other projects.

Roger Berliner, the chair of the council’s transportation committee, said Montrose Parkway East could be needed in the future to handle traffic as the White Flint area develops, but he doesn’t believe it’s needed now. (Nancy) Floreen said Wednesday she is opposed to diverting the funds for the parkway.
