The Transportation Planning Board approves funding


FREDERICK, MD – July 18, 2018: The City of Frederick has been diligent in seeking available funding to enhance multi-modal transportation along the Golden Mile and has had many successes in recent years. During the creation of the Golden Mile Small Area Plan, we worked closely with MDOT and the Transportation Planning Board and were awarded consulting services through the Transportation Land Use Connections (TLC) program for planning of improvements along that corridor. A shared use path and dedicated colored bus lanes along Route 40 were included in the planning document. We later applied for and were awarded additional consulting services for 30% design of that path and the bus lanes under the TLC program.


Today, the Transportation Planning Board unanimously approved $686,309.00 through the Transportation Alternatives Set Aside Program to complete the design for the Shared Use Path portion of the project along the Golden Mile. The final design project will get underway once all necessary approvals are finalized by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen with all the partner entities. Corridor stakeholders, such as the Golden Mile Alliance, Neighborhood Advisory Councils, and multiple staff people from various jurisdictions will oversee the development of the final design. “I want to acknowledge the hard work of our planning staff, notably Tim Davis, for his technical expertise throughout the application process, and Alderman Kelly Russell, for her leadership on the TPB and advocacy on behalf of The City of Frederick and its residents,” said Mayor Michael O’Connor.
