Plan It 2035

Like many urban areas in the country, the Baltimore region has an extensive transportation network — including highways, city streets, suburban and rural roads, bus lines, train tracks and bicycling paths. All of these modes of transportation have one thing in common: they help people and goods get where they need to go.

Plan It 2035 - the Long-Range Transportation Plan for the Baltimore Region - was approved by the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) on Monday, November 14, 2011.

Plan It 2035 was developed with local, state, and federal agency transportation professionals, area business leaders, community advocates, and many other interested stakeholders. Key steps of the planning process were: 

:: Final Plan :: 

On Monday, November 14, 2011 the BRTB voted to approve Plan It 2035, which sets aside nearly $11.5 billion worth of projects to expand our current transportation system, $24 billion to operate the existing system, and $9.4 billion for system preservation.

:: Draft Plan :: 

A public review period on the draft plan was held from Wednesday, September 21 through Friday, October 21, 2011.  

:: Project Evaluation Process :: 

The project evaluation process, also known as prioritization, contains criteria to be used in determining regionally significant highway, freight, and transit projects to be included in Plan It 2035.  The process also provides the policy and technical criteria for evaluating all other projects—highway, transit, and bicycle/pedestrian—submitted for consideration.  

:: Financial Forecast :: 

The projects listed in the draft plan are a carefully selected mix that takes into account the level of resources that can reasonably be expected to be available through 2035. 

:: Demographic and Socioeconomic Projections :: 

Planning a transportation system for generations to come is a complex task. How many people will live here? Where will they work? What kind of transportation service will they want and need? 

:: Call for Projects ::

Plan It 2035 includes a variety of projects that add to or enhance our existing transportation system. These include transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and highway and interchange projects. The BRTB also includes projects that help the system function more efficiently.

Draft Project List - In July 2011, BRTB members submitted a list of projects to be considered for Plan It 2035

Public Project Ideas - From December 2010 through January 2011, the BRTB welcomed project ideas from the public for Plan It 2035

:: Goals and Strategies ::

On October 26, 2010, the BRTB approved the final goals for Plan It 2035. Each of the 8 goals include a number of strategies to meet the goal.

:: Public Outreach and Engagement ::

Throughout the process to develop Plan It 2035, the public was invited to comment on the draft goals, share their project ideas, and join us at public meetings or give the BRTB feedback.
