Following receipt of the letter and the scores, the Maryland Department of Transportation will evaluate the projects in the letter to assist the state in updating the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) a six-year capital budget for State transportation projects.
The CTP includes capital projects that are generally new, expanded or significantly improved facility or service that may involve planning, environmental studies, design, right-of-way acquisition, construction or the purchase of essential equipment related to the facility or service.
The MDOT Priority Letter website has archived statewide priority letters since 2007, including Howard County's.
A link to the State Highway Administration section of the CTP follows: SHP CTP
