Millions Available in Maryland






AASHTO is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Its primary goal is to foster the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system.


The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) announced the availability of $4 million in grants for bikeway projects in Maryland.

The Maryland Bikeways Program administered by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) began in 2011. Thus far, MDOT has awarded a total of $5.63 million to 48 projects.

Grants will be dispersed to projects that will maximize bike access; help fill in missing segments in the state's bikeway network, make biking safer for Maryland citizens; and improve bicycle access to certain areas (such as schools and shopping areas).

"In another effort to provide alternative transportation options, MDOT will be awarding Bikeways Grants to fund, design, as well as construction of needed bike enhancements to our existing bicycle network," said MDOT Acting Transportation Secretary Darrell Mobley in a statement.

Mobley continued, "Through strategic investment in the bicycle network, Maryland and our partners hope to stimulate the economy, protect the environment and improve physical fitness."
