Maryland Traffic Relief Plan Industry Forum
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 8:30 AM-12:00 PM
BWI Airport Marriott, Linthicum, MD
The Maryland Traffic Relief Plan includes a $7.6 billion public-private partnership, the largest highway P3 endeavor in North America, for improvements to I-495 and I-270. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) has issued a Request for Information (RFI), which is the first step in the process to bring accelerated project delivery – congestion relief sooner than traditional financing can provide; innovation – partnering with the best and brightest minds in the transportation industry; and capital – funds that can be used to bring statewide transportation benefits to Maryland.
Representatives from MDOT will be on-hand at the industry forum to discuss the project and review laws and guidelines. Make your reservation now! To register click HERE. Additional information is available at Maryland Traffic Relief Plan
