Hogan administration awards $57M in grants for local road improvements

| September 19, 2018, 04:17 PM

The Hogan administration today announced it has awarded $57.9 million in grants to improve local roads across the state. The grants were distributed to all 23 counties, Baltimore City, and other municipalities based on the formula for the distribution of Highway User Revenues (HURs). The funding represents a nearly $20 million increase over fiscal year 2018, and continues to make good on Governor Larry Hogan’s pledge to return HURs to local jurisdictions for critical road improvements.

Anne Arundel County receives just over $3 million and Annapolis will receive just under $1 million.

“Since taking office, our administration has been committed to returning Highway User Revenues to local jurisdictions across Maryland, which is exactly where they belong,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “These grants provide our counties and municipalities with vital funding to keep our roads and citizens safe.”

The grants add to the nearly $178 million in Highway User Revenues that Maryland counties and municipalities are set to receive in fiscal year 2019. Jurisdictions must use the grants for transportation projects.

For the past four years, Governor Hogan has fought to return HURs to past levels after being severely reduced by the previous administration. Despite these efforts, the funding has been cut significantly and consistently by the Maryland General Assembly.

The Hogan administration has invested $16 billion in the state’s draft Consolidated Transportation Plan for fiscal years 2019–2024. Across the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), 816 projects totaling $8.8 billion are under construction – including highways, toll facilities, the Port of Baltimore, and BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.

“We continue to invest in critical transportation projects that benefit residents and businesses across Maryland,” said MDOT Secretary Pete K. Rahn.
