Maryland State Freight Plan

Purpose of the Plan

The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) updated the Maryland State Rail Plan in 2022. State rail plans are required by the federal Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA), and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) of 2015 specified that state rail plans be updated every four years. Beyond the federal requirements, the Plan outlines public and private investments and policies that will ensure the efficient, safe, and sustainable movement of freight and passengers by rail. The Plan’s comprehensive list of rail projects enables MDOT to work strategically with private railroads and other stakeholders to address rail needs and support where possible.
