Maryland Department of Transportation Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Plan Overview

The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is updating the 2019 Bicycle and Pedestrian Statewide Master Plan. MDOT’s vision is to produce a concise, data-driven bicycle, pedestrian and micromobility master plan to update policies and provide infrastructure recommendations to increase mode shift and improve safety. The Plan will highlight accomplishments since the 2040 Plan (adopted in 2019) and recommend initiatives for the next five years, including:

  • Update and strengthen MDOT’s bicycle, micromobility and pedestrian policies, practices and tools.

  • Identify gaps on Maryland’s low stress networks of shared use paths, protected bikeways and sidewalks

  • Recommend infrastructure that support MDOT's mission to improve walking, biking & rolling.

  • Develop an implementation plan to guide infrastructure investments & policy changes.
