Hogan Announces $25 Million for Local Road Investments

September 10th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

 In an effort to support counties and municipalities with road improvements, local governments will be receiving applications in the mail soon that need to be submitted by September 30. These applications also can be downloaded online at this link.

Historically, 30 percent of all Highway User Revenues went to counties and municipalities to support their local transportation funding, but during the 2010 legislative session, the amount going to local jurisdictions was cut from 30 percent down to 9.6 percent.

“This administration remains committed to restoring funding levels for local road improvements and this $25 million investment is a step in the right direction,” Governor Hogan said. “Everyone in the state relies on Maryland’s roads, and this funding will help local governments deliver the quality infrastructure our citizens need and deserve.”

This $25 million will be added to the estimated $171.9 million in Highway User Revenues the local jurisdictions were set to receive in fiscal year 2016. These new funds are in addition to the governor’s $2 billion investment in road and bridge projects announced in June. The Hogan administration added this funding in a supplemental budget during the 2015 legislative session.
