ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman today released an on-line survey to gather community input as the County prepares its request for Fiscal Year 2017 State transportation funding.

The survey, available on the County’s website at https://www.howardcountymd.gov/Departments/County-Administration/Transportation and through social media, will measure the strength of residents’ support for 22 potential projects. The projects range from improvements to I-70 and MD 100 to upgrades to MARC service and bus transportation.

“I’ve pledged an open and transparent administration and I value public input as we establish our transportation priorities,” said Kittleman. “Competition for state funds is always strong and we want to ensure we prioritize our request in a way that best serves our residents.”

Additionally, three projects that have already received funding or support from the State will automatically be included in the County’s Priority Letter to the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT). Those projects are the widening of US 29 from the Middle Patuxent River to Seneca Drive, the widening of MD 32 from MD 108 to I-70 and improvements at the intersection of US 1 and Kit Kat Road.

The County will accept responses to the survey through March 11, 2016. The information will be compiled by the Office of Transportation and will help shape the County’s Priority Letter to MDOT, which should be submitted in early April.

The survey can also be accessed directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7LGVXTF.
