July 10th Deadline for Comments on Maryland’s Transportation Plan

MDOT has set a deadline of July 10th for public comment on the latest revision to Maryland’s Transportation Plan. 

Maryland is creating a long-range vision for transportation to serve the state for generations to come – incorporating every mode from passenger and commuter rail, airports and highways to bridges, bike and pedestrian facilities. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is asking residents to join this process, and share their ideas to help build a safe, convenient and inclusive system that benefits every Maryland community.

Maryland’s Transportation Plan is revisited every five years. The 2050 Maryland Transportation Plan, expected to be adopted in January after public review and input, will guide policy and investments in the coming decades.

Last week MDOT launched an online survey asking Marylanders to help shape the state’s future transportation network. The survey is available here through July 10. The public also can share comments at MDOTMTP@mdot.maryland.gov.

In addition, the state’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is also being updated this year as part of the overall transportation review, recognizing that bike/pedestrian infrastructure and policies are critical components of an interconnected network. Residents can get more information on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan process – and follow its progress – at 2050marylandbpmp.com.

Comments and questions about bicycle and pedestrian access are encouraged and can be submitted at bikepedinfo@mdot.maryland.gov.
