Statewide meetings occur at various locations in all 23 Maryland counties and Baltimore City.  Please visit our website for a complete list of dates, times and locations at: mdot.maryland.gov/newMDOT/Planning/CTP/2016_CTP_Tour.

WHY:                                                             
Each fall, MDOT presents its draft six-year capital program to every county and Baltimore City for review and comment.  MDOT then prepares a final budget to present to the General Assembly in January.  The Hogan Administration’s six-year Draft FY 2017 - FY 2022 CTP invests $14.4 billion in Maryland’s transportation network.  Above and beyond this funding, the Maryland Transportation Authority is investing another $1.99 billion in our toll roads and bridges.
