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 last plan was adopted while recommending initiatives to be taken over the next 5 years with considerations towards:

  • Updating and strengthening 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. 

Plan Schedule

The Plan kicked off in January 2023 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Updates regarding the Plan deliverables and advertisements for public meetings will be posted on this website.
