The Technical Committee reviews and evaluates all transportation plans and programs from a technical standpoint. Composed of transportation planners and engineers appointed by local governments and several state agenices, the Technical Committee makes recommendations to the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board based on technical sufficiency, accuracy, and completeness of all plans and programs. This input provides the BRTB with a technical viewpoint prior to making decisions.
Meetings are the first Tuesday of each month and are open to the public.
