Iíve wondered why in MD, they are expanding I-495, I-270, and the BW Parkway, but leaving the most important road (I-95) untouched.

I would guess because I-95 is already 8-lanes between between DC and Baltimore. Plus there are several options available along that corridor including Rt 29, BW Parkway, Rt 1 etc not to mention the transit options. Widening the road more probably wouldn't help much and would be a waste of state resources.

They may be preserving the median right-of-way for the potential maglev train.

It is way too twisty for a maglev alignment.

No need. They also have the express at a certain point on it if you need to get past the traffic.

Between those two points there is Rt 29, Belair( Rt 1), and 295 which all run parallel between 495 and 695.
