Each fall, MDOT presents its draft six-year capital program to every county and Baltimore City for review and comment. MDOT then prepares a final budget to present to the General Assembly in January. 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, visit: www.ctp.maryland.gov.
