The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is updating the Maryland State Freight Plan and is in the process of compiling freight-relevant needs and projects across Maryland’s five regions. The Plan is also evaluating statewide freight strategies across seven goal areas that are aligned with the 2040 Maryland Transportation Plan. MDOT is seeking input from the public and freight stakeholders on this milestone regarding your opinions on priorities or other ideas related to these findings on statewide freight needs, priorities, and strategies.
The purpose of the Maryland State Freight Plan is to examine existing and projected freight and supply chain conditions in the state and identify policy positions, strategies and projects that can improve freight movement efficiency and safety. The plan is updated every five years. The most recent plan was published in 2017 and can be found HERE
As part of the plan update, MDOT has launched an online survey, at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W2NQTKG
, that solicits public input on freight needs, projects, and strategies throughout Maryland. Responses will help to inform and refine content for the overall draft plan that will be developed later this year. The survey is available through January 24, 2022.
