The draft 2023-2026 TIP is the list of regional transportation projects requesting federal funding in the near term. It includes $4.26 billion in proposed funding (federal, state, local, toll revenue) for highway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects during the next four years. The funding goes toward maintaining, operating and expanding the transportation system. These projects support regional goals such as accessibility, safety, and prosperity. Funding identified in the TIP is based on funding reasonably expected to be available from all sources.

The draft 2023-2026 TIP includes 132 projects, 7 of which are new to this year’s TIP, 6 were in previous TIPs but were removed due to lack of funding, and project management for 3 projects have moved from Anne Arundel County to MDOT SHA. Highlights include:
  • Anne Arundel County is dedicating nearly $16 million in funding for a multi-modal Transportation Center in Parole at the Westfield Annapolis Mall to serve existing local and regional bus service, with possible future connectivity to modes such as bikeshare, carshare, and ride hailing services; 
  • Baltimore City, in partnership with the state of Maryland, is investing $50 million in an RAISE Transit Priority Project (formerly the East-West Priority Bus Corridor), facilitating more efficient transit trips, improving multi-modal connections, and addressing existing safety issues. The project will improve bus service between east and west Baltimore and will help to reduce emissions.
  • Baltimore, Carroll and Harford Counties are dedicating federal and local funding for 28 essential bridge improvement projects
  • Howard County continues progress on a $24 million project on Snowden River Parkway: Broken Land Parkway to Oakland Mills Road adding a third lane along Snowden River Parkway in each direction and will provide new 10-foot shared-use paths in an effort to increase transportation alternatives to access public transit. 
  • MDOT SHA is dedicating $180.2 million to reconstruct the interchange of I-695 at I-70 to improve safety, operations and capacity. MDOT SHA is also dedicating $133 million to widen I-695: US 40 to MD 144 to provide safety and capacity improvements. 
  • The Maryland Port Administration is partnering with CSX to leverage federal grant funding to reconstruct the 125-year-old Howard Street Tunnel in order to create double-stack rail access to and from the Port of Baltimore. Adjustments to several other bridges in Baltimore City are included in this project. 
  • MDTA also continues engineering and construction on a $1.1 billion project in Baltimore and Harford Counties adding two additional Express Toll Lanes on I-95 from north of MD 43 to north of MD 24. This project is funded with toll revenues.
