MDOT officials met with Frederick officials on statewide tour


The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) office and representatives from other transportation departments visited Frederick County on Thursday to discuss roads and projects in the area.

The stop is a part of MDOT’s annual tour throughout the state. The tour updates officials and the public of Hogan’s administration’s draft of the six year Consolidated Transportation Program. There are over 500 active construction projects under way including adding lanes to I-495 and I-270 to help reduce congestion in and around the beltway.

“For local project, we are also providing Frederick County and its Municipalities, $43 million in highway user revenues and grant dollars over the next 6 years and that includes a $4 million recently awarded by the Governor,” said Greg Slater, MDOT State Highway Administration.

Officials from county and the city of Frederick were present at the meeting.
