The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) welcomed comments on its draft Budget & Work Program for Fiscal Years 2016-2017 from Tuesday, February 17 through Thursday, March 19, 2015. The BRTB voted to approve the FY 2016-2017 UPWP on April 28 via BRTB Resolution #15-26.
The BRTB develops this list of regional transportation planning activities every one to two fiscal years. This plan includes funding for planning activities for July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2017.
What is in the Budget and Work Program?
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for Transportation Planning details projects, studies and other activities to be completed by BRTB members and staff. The draft UPWP includes both local and region-wide activities. Highlights include:
- Promoting safety for all users of the transportation network, especially pedestrians and bicyclists.
- Enhancing and maintaining the region’s travel demand model, moving from a traditional four-step model to an activity-based model.
- Initiating a series of sensitivity tests of the statewide supply chain and urban tour-based commercial vehicle model to better understand freight movement in the region.
- Completing Maximize2040: A Performance-Based Transportation Plan and solicit feedback from members of the public and key stakeholders.
- Harford County will conduct a study of the MD 924 corridor from MacPhail Road to south of Singer Road to gain a comprehensive report on roadway safety and operations.
- Howard County will continue to evaluate the feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in the county, specifically along such major routes as US 29 and US 1.
