Welcome to the Maryland Department of Transportation's (MDOT's) website for Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). This website is one of many important components in our approach to BRAC as we continue to share information related to the creative visioning and implementation of thoughtful plans developed to support BRAC growth in Maryland.
BRAC encompassed the arrival of new residents, jobs, and national defense and security activities into Maryland through September, 2011 all resulting from legislation which authorized the 2005 BRAC Commission’s decision to relocate several thousand jobs from outside the State to five Maryland military installations. BRAC has brought to the State a myriad of benefits, as well achallenge of providing, among many other things, the additional transportation infrastructure necessary to support BRAC, while at the same time supporting ongoing regional growth and Marylanders’ quality of life.
MDOT has taken a proactive approach in meeting increase in demand on the transportation system as a result of BRAC. We look forward to our ongoing role in support of our nation’s defense and security, and we are committed to ensure that BRAC consolidations in Maryland are a success.
