Frederick County Annual Transportation Priorities Review
The Transportation Priorities Review (TPR) is conducted annually to address the State primary and secondary highway project priorities as well as a review of other transportation needs and priorities. A focus of the TPR is to highlight the multi-modal components of the County’s transportation network. It also identifies specific priorities for the state primary and secondary highways for the Maryland Department of Transportation’s preparation of next year’s draft Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP).
The Transportation Priorities Review provides a multi-modal approach to identifying transportation needs and priorities, including:
State primary and secondary highway projects
Local and regional transit services
Bicycle and pedestrian projects
The Frederick Municipal Airport
The Transportation Priorities Review is formally presented for review to the County Planning Commission, Transportation Services Advisory Council (TSAC), and the County Council. Comments and recommendations from these groups and Frederick County municipalities will be forwarded to the County Executive and the Maryland State Delegation for their consideration and final approval. All of these presentations are open to the public. County staff also coordinates with individual Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) agencies as appropriate to review opportunities for consistency in project priorities. The priority listing for State projects are then transmitted to MDOT in early April.
