2040 MD

Reminder – The 2040 MTP Draft Plan comment period ends Thursday, November 15th.

The Maryland Transportation Plan (MTP) is updated every five years through extensive consultation and coordination with state, regional and local government stakeholders and outreach to Maryland’s citizens. The perspective of transportation users has been critical in shaping the development of the Draft 2040 MTP: Connecting You to Life’s Opportunities. You can now view a copy of the Draft Plan at the Maryland Transportation Plan here.

The Draft 2040 MTP includes highlights of Maryland’s transportation trends, key challenges and opportunities and high-level transportation needs and revenues over the next twenty years. It outlines goals and objectives, and provides highlights of major accomplishments since the last Plan. The Draft 2040 MTP identifies strategies for implementing the long-range plan, as well as illustrative projects in each of the five Maryland regions, and ultimately identifies performance measures to illustrate how well we implement the Plan.

The public comment period ends on November 15, 2018. Comments and questions should be emailed to 2019MTP@mdot.state.md.us. Public feedback will be used to inform the Final Plan, which is anticipated to be adopted in January 2019. Thank you for your input and please stay involved as we continue to develop and finalize the Maryland Transportation Plan.
