Within the last few years:
- The Partnership took a leadership role in advocating the Intercounty Connector, testifying in favor of the project, and bringing information on the vital need for the project to our members.
- The Partnership advocated for improved connectivity between Washington and Baltimore, resulting in a State study of extending the Green Line of the Washington Metro system from Greenbelt to BWI.
- Recent highway projects we have endorsed include the construction of MD Route 100 and improvements to MD Route 32 to link our region with adjacent employment centers.
- Currently, improvements to the Baltimore/Washington Parkway are a major Partnership initiative as are upgrades to roadways around Ft. Meade to meet the needs of workers coming to Ft. Meade under the 2005 BRAC realignment.
- The Partnership is involved in transportation planning processes, working with various transportation entities and elected officials at local, state and federal levels. This coordinated approach helps to ensure improvement to the transportation infrastructure in the region.
- We also represent the area’s business interests in a variety of advisory groups and economic forums.
- We join with other organizations on critical transportation issues to ensure that the needs of our area are met.
- We also partner with several organizations as we further our mission on behalf of our membership. Click here for a list of those organizations.
We also work with Central Maryland Transportation Alliance to further transportation progress in the central Maryland region.
The Central Maryland Transportation Alliance (CMTA) is a new organization formed by a coalition of area business and nonprofit leaders dedicated to improving travel efficiency within Central Maryland – Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, & Howard Counties, and Baltimore City. As advocates for the development and implementation of a comprehensive and innovative transportation plan, CMTA acts as a convener of diverse interests; advisor to city, county, state, and federal officials; and coordinator of advocacy efforts for short and long term strategies, with the necessary regional, state, and federal funding, to implement transportation improvements.
