A potential pact between commissioners and builders of a 173-acre technology park could make the county owners of its first state highway overpass. In recent years, disagreements between developers and local officials have hampered progress on the Jefferson Technology Park, located at the intersections of I-70, Md. 180 and U.S. 15. But now local officials are mulling an agreement that could put to rest a $30 million lawsuit with the tech park builders and revive a project that a county consultant estimates could bring more than 7,000 jobs to the area.
