The Maryland Transportation Plan is updated through extensive consultation and coordination with state, regional and local government stakeholders. It is also updated through outreach to Maryland’s citizens, whose feedback and viewpoints are vital in shaping the MTP.
Between November 2017 and January 2018, a survey was conducted as part of MDOT’s public outreach effort to gather input for the 2040 Maryland Transportation Plan. At the end of the survey period there were over 5,927 participants and thousands of comments regarding Maryland’s transportation future.
Some of the questions asked included having participants rank their #1 priority when it comes to transportation topics in the state. The results showed that Tax Dollars Spent Wisely (28.2%), Transportation Choices (27.6%), and System Expansion (27.1%), were the top three that ranked as a #1 priority.
This invaluable feedback is used to draft the goals and objectives for Maryland’s Transportation Plan. These goals and objectives can be viewed here, http://www.mdot.maryland.gov/newMDOT/Planning/Maryland_Transportation_Plan/Index.html where you can also provide your own input through February 28, 2018.
Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey and gave their input on which transportation topics were most important to them. We hope you will continue to visit the 2040 MTP website and stay involved as they develop the draft Maryland long-range Transportation Plan.
