Maryland Transportation System Performance Dashboard 2018 Annual Attainment Report Highlights

 Goal: Economic Prosperity


  • Improve the movement of freight and support growth in the flow of goods within and
    through Maryland.
  • Facilitate opportunities for growth in jobs and business across the State.

 Select a Measure:

What We Measure:

User cost savings for the traveling public, including commercial traffic from reduced delay due to incident management. Cost savings are calculated using Coordinated Highways Action Response Team (CHART) incident response data.

Why We Measure:

The total user cost savings to motorists and commercial traffic (from reduced delay on Maryland state and interstate roadways) reflects the tangible benefits of the Coordinated Highways Action Response Team (CHART) incident management program.

Why Did Performance Change?

  • Helped reduce delay by 43.60 million vehicle-hours
  • Saved roadway users $1.512 billion
  • Handled 141,607 events, including incident responses, assistance with disabled vehicles, and traffic management operations for special and weather-related events
  • Coordinated 68 Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) 2 Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder training sessions; CHART directly facilitated 24 sessions at which 1,635 incident responders were trained
  • Completed the Business Area Architecture that will guide CHART Advanced Traffic Management System development efforts over the next five to 10 years
  • Implemented Work Zone Impacts and Strategies Estimator (WISE) initiative for optimal work zone planning, scheduling and operations decision support

What Are Future Performance Strategies?

  • Complete an Integrated Freeway and Arterial Master Plan with traffic management tools to reduce congestion and enhance safety
  • Evaluate the CHART patrol program to determine continuing improvements in reduction of roadway delays and user cost savings ($111.2 million State funds in the FY 2018–FY 2023 CTP for CHART)
