BRTB Seeks Public Comments on $3.2 Billion in Transportation Projects

BRTB Seeks Public Comments on $3.2 Billion in Transportation Projects

BALTIMORE, MD (May 23, 2018) – The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Baltimore region seeks public comments through Monday, June 25 on two transportation-related documents – the draft 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the associated Air Quality Conformity Determination of the FY 2019-2022 TIP and amended Maximize2040: A Performance-Based Transportation Plan.

The BRTB is scheduled to vote on these documents on Tuesday, July 24.

2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The 2019-2022 TIP is the list of regional transportation projects requesting federal funding in the near term. It includes approximately $3.2 billion in proposed federal, state and local money for highway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects during the next four years. The funding goes toward maintaining, operating and expanding the transportation system. The TIP is fiscally constrained.

Air Quality Conformity Determination Report
The Baltimore region has been designated as not meeting National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and, as a result, the BRTB must review its current transportation plan and program to ensure conformity with the state plan to meet these standards, known as the State Implementation Plan (SIP). The Air Quality Conformity Determination report details a comprehensive analysis of effects that the draft 2019-2022 TIP and the amended Maximize2040: A Performance-Based Transportation Plan have on the Baltimore region. The report addresses ground-level ozone emissions.

The conformity results show that implementation of these projects will not worsen the region’s air quality or delay the timely attainment of national air quality standards. The draft air quality conformity determination is available in PDF format for download.
