A Message From the Secretary
I’m honored to serve the people of Maryland under Governor Larry Hogan as the State’s 14th Transportation Secretary. I understand that transportation impacts everyone, every day. This job is a big responsibility, but also a big opportunity. Providing a balanced, reliable, safe, efficient and affordable transportation system is essential to all of Maryland’s citizens and businesses. As Transportation Secretary, I’m charged with managing a $4.9 billion annual budget (FY 2016) and leading more than 11,000 employees. Our six-year draft transportation budget, known as the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP), reflects the planned investments of $15.5 billion from FY 2016 to FY 2021 across the State in transit, highways, the Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore and the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Above and beyond this $15.5 billion investment, the Maryland Transportation Authority, an independent financial authority, provides $1.85 billion for toll facilities throughout the State.
MDOT is currently revising its policies to ensure that we deliver projects BETTER, FASTER, and CHEAPER. For example, the Practical Design Policy ensures that we are prioritizing the needs of the system over the wants of a project. This will reduces costs in projects and ensure that we are vigilant stewards of the public’s money, whether it is federal, state or local resources.
I hope to meet with you as I travel throughout Maryland working on key transportation solutions in every corner of the State!
