MDOT Releases Draft Consolidated Transportation Program


CTP CoverThe Maryland Department of Transportation released the Draft FY 2020-2025 Consolidated Transportation Program. The CTP is Maryland’s capital budget for transportation projects and contains projects and programs across the Department. For every major project included in the CTP, there are project details, financial information and construction status listed.

From the Draft CTP:

In total, one-hundred and sixty-four major construction projects experienced significant changes in project cost or scope, for a net increase of $663.0 million. One-hundred And Nineteen projects increased in cost by a total of $858.9 million, while thirty-eight projects experienced decreases totaling $213.4 million. The scope of six projects changed, which caused a net increase totalling $28.3 million, while one project experienced a reduction in scope totalling $10.6 million. There are many reasons for these changes, including legislated changes in program participation rates, more refined cost estimates, changes in design and environmental requirements. The specific reasons for significant changes to individual projects are noted on their respective Project Information Forms (PIF’s).

Notably, the Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) has been removed from the Design and Engineering Program. The CTC is a planned 15-mile Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project between the COMSAT facility near Clarksburg, Maryland and the Shady Grove Metro Station.
