Public Workshops

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are evaluating potential solutions to reduce congestion on I-270 between I-370 and I-70. This evaluation of I-270 between I-370 and I-70 will begin with early planning activities prior to an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Initial Pre-NEPA activities include a review of existing and future traffic, roadway, and environmental conditions to inform the development of alternatives.


MDOT SHA invites the public to learn more at a series of workshops, which will:

  • provide an overview of the Pre-NEPA activities and the NEPA process
  • discuss the transportation needs of the corridor
  • identify potential solutions and existing environmental considerations

The workshop format will allow attendees to review display boards and meet with MDOT SHA Study Team staff. There will be a brief presentation at 7:00 p.m at each workshop.
