County Executive John R. Leopold announced today the start of a transportation study aimed at identifying and prioritizing strategies to reduce traffic congestion along nine major highway corridors in the County.

“In order to remain economically competitive and continue to improve our quality of life, we must constantly strive to increase mobility,” County Executive Leopold said.  “It is very important that the public provides comments we can use to develop a plan that improves our roads, rails, trails, bike paths, ridesharing and pedestrian pathways.  Our citizens who use these transportation methods are most knowledgeable about how to improve them.”

To kick off the Transportation Functional Master Plan (TFMP) study, three public listening sessions have been scheduled to solicit citizen feedback about transportation throughout the County. All listening sessions will have sign-up sheets for individuals wishing to testify.  Written comments will also be accepted.  Sessions will be from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the following schools:

  • January 18, 2011 at Annapolis Senior High School
  • January 20, 2011 at Southern Senior High School
  • January 26, 2011 at Meade Middle School

Mr. Leopold will also appoint a seven member Citizen Advisory Committee that will provide insight about the analysis, findings and recommendations developed over the course of the study.  The study will be conducted by a consultant team under the direction of the Office of Planning and Zoning and is 80% funded through a Federal transportation planning grant.

The nine corridors to be studied are:

1. US 50: Prince George’s County Line to WP Lane Memorial   (Chesapeake Bay) Bridge

2. MD 2: Central Avenue (MD 214) to West Street (MD 450)

3. MD 2:  US 50 to I-695

4. I-97:  US 50 to I-695

5. MD 32:  I-97 to Howard County

6. MD 100:  MD 648 to Howard County Line

7. MD 295:  Prince George’s County to I-695

8. MD 3:  Prince George’s County to MD 32

9. Magothy Bridge Rd to Hog Neck Rd (MD 607)  to Ft. Smallwood Rd (MD 173) to Baltimore City Line

Individuals needing special accommodations should contact Pam Jordan at 410-222-4464 at least seven working days prior to the meeting or through the Maryland Relay Service at 711 or 410 222-4355 (TDD).  All materials are available in an alternative format upon request.
