The Maryland Transportation Plan (MTP) establishes a 20-year vision for transportation in the State and provides policy direction through statewide multimodal goals and objectives. The MTP is also used to develop performance measures that assess how effectively the Department is performing its mission. In addition, the MTP guides the development of the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP), which identifies specific road, bridge, transit, aviation, port, pedestrian and bikeway projects that will be funded over the next six years.
The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) updates the MTP every five years to address current and future transportation challenges and conditions. MDOT conducts extensive public outreach to engage Maryland’s citizens, agencies, and interested organizations in revisions to the transportation system’s long-range vision, goals, and objectives.
