A new report to be released Thursday by TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC, examines Maryland’s Interstate Highway System as it faces increasing usage, mounting congestion and deteriorating pavement conditions.
The report, “Restoring Maryland’s Interstate Highway System: Meeting Maryland’s Transportation Needs with a Reliable, Safe & Well-Maintained National Highway Network,” finds that the rate of congestion, travel volume and pavement deterioration on Maryland’s Interstate Highway System are among the highest in the nation.
Based on the findings of a 2019 report requested by Congress, the TRIP report concludes with a set of recommendations for the restoration and renewal of the Interstate Highway System.
