BRTB shares draft $4.52 billion Transportation Improvement Program for 2025-2028

Press Releases

BALTIMORE, MD (Thursday, May 16, 2024) – The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) is seeking feedback on a draft transportation investment plan which anticipates $4.52 billion for projects throughout the Baltimore region. A comment period on the draft closes June 17, and includes two virtual public meetings on June 10.

Known formally as the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the plan includes funding for 162 bicycle, pedestrian, transit, bridge, highway and freight projects that BRTB members tapped as priorities for the 2025-2028 planning window.

Key among these are safety improvements at dozens of intersections in Baltimore City, bridge repairs or replacements in Baltimore and Carroll Counties, expansions along Snowden River Parkway in Columbia and transit-oriented development in Odenton and Aberdeen, as well as the Maryland Port Administration’s Howard Street Tunnel freight corridor expansion, the Maryland Transportation Authority’s I-95 Express Toll Lanes from White Marsh to Bel Air and the Maryland Transit Administration’s Red Line connection across Baltimore.

“Boosting connectivity across modes of travel, improving environmental outcomes and increasing safety for all users are important threads in this TIP,” said Todd Lang, Director of Transportation Planning at Baltimore Metropolitan Council, the agency that staffs and supports the BRTB. “These projects will help move our region’s transportation network forward.”

The 2025-2028 TIP includes about $2.3 billion for highway preservation and expansion, $1.28 billion for transit and commuter rail preservation and expansion, $463 million for the ports and $480 million for emissions reductions, safety improvements and other spending. Support from federal agencies accounts for about $2.8 billion of this funding, with state and local agencies providing $1.24 billion and toll revenues covering $490 million.

Notably, investments in bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure are drawn from many categories, particularly the funding for highway preservation and expansion. This TIP also includes record funding for transit throughout the region, accounting for all of the transit projects requested by local and state agencies.

The draft TIP also includes an Air Quality Conformity Determination, which assesses that the projects in the TIP will not delay the Baltimore region’s progress toward meeting national air quality standards.
