The Intercounty Connector's debut

On a rainy Monday, officials gathered in Gaithersburg for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony before Wednesday's opening of the first stretch of the Intercounty Connector, the 18.8-mile highway that will connect Prince George's and Montgomery counties. The opening was scheduled for Tuesday but was delayed a day because of weather concerns.
