ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman today announced the beginning of the public input process as the County prepares to submit its annual Priority Letter to the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT). The Priority Letter will recommend Howard County’s prioritized transportation projects for MDOT’s FY 2018-2023 Consolidated Transportation Program. The letter is due to MDOT this April, and is a result of review and input by County staff from several departments, elected and appointed officials.
