The Hogan administration's six-year Draft FY 2021-2026 CTP invests $13.4 billion in Maryland's transportation network. Above and beyond this funding, the Maryland Transportation Authority is investing another $2.8 billion in our toll roads and bridges. To view the Draft CTP, click here: www.ctp.maryland.gov.
