Howard County 2019 Priority Letter

 Howard County is in the process of starting the Fiscal Year 2019 Priority Letter, which will list the County’s prioritized transportation projects for the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT)'s FY 2019-2024 Consolidated Transportation Program.  The projects in the letter will include: results from public (public meeting and online survey), Howard County staff from several departments, as well as elected and appointed officials. 

 Projects that are selected to be in the Priority Letter, are then scored by MDOT using the Chapter 30 Scoring Model. Based on the scores using MDOT's Chapter 30 Scoring Model, the projects are then placed in the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP). 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 Office of Transportation will be holding a public information and input meeting about the Priority Letter on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM- 9:00 PM in the C. Vernon Gray Room at the George Howard Building in Ellicott City. During the meeting, staff will review the projects that were in 2018 Priority Letter, discuss potential projects, and answer questions from the meeting attendees.  Should you have any questions, please contact the Office of Transportation 410.313.4312.
