Traffic and Transportation

 

Successes

I knew when I took office that reducing traffic congestion would be our most difficult challenge. We love our cars and our county was built for them.


I am proud to report, however, that we are moving in a new direction. Traffic mitigation projects are underway and our new multimodal transportation plan is being implemented.


  • Moved six of our county traffic mitigation projects into the state’s top ten priorities by incentivizing with county funds and working effectively with state leadership


  • Signed agreement with State Highways to move forward on improvements at failed intersections on Route 3, Ritchie Highway, and Route 214


  • Bike and pedestrian trail network to allow not only recreation but also effective transportation well underway


  • Design underway for new Parole Transit Center


  • Working closely with our Congressional Delegation to secure federal infrastructure funding for trails, roads, bridges, and electric buses



  • Structured parking for Odenton MARC station in design

Plans

In my second term we will finish the trail network, build the traffic mitigation improvements, and create the transit system that actually reduces miles driven by cars on our roads.
