Public Review and Comment Period
May 21 to June 22, 2010

This is your opportunity to share your thoughts and to let the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) know what you think about these proposed plans and programs.  

The Draft 2011-2014 TIP for the Baltimore region contains a list of transportation priorities and projects for which federal funding (to the tune of $1.2 billion dollars) will be requested over the next 4 years. Projects are drawn from recommendations in the long-range transportation plan for the Baltimore region. Approximately 61% of the funds are for highway and bridge preservation. In addition, an air quality report regarding the impact of the proposed projects on the Baltimore region is also available for review and comment.
