​Transportation Element Checklist

Open the checklist

Planning and the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) collaborate on long range transportation planning technical assistance to counties and municipalities. One way in which the two state agencies support local planning efforts is by providing guidance and feedback on comprehensive plans. The Maryland Land Use Article section §3-102 requires a jurisdiction to include “a transportation element” in its comprehensive plan and section §3-105 outlines broad requirements for what a transportation element should contain. MDOT and Planning developed a Transportation Element Checklist​ as a resource for jurisdictions in the early stages of transportation planning. The checklist is not intended as a list of requirements, but rather a compilation of items, data and other resources, questions, and best practices that jurisdictions may choose to consider when completing a transportation element and integrating it with other comprehensive plan elements.
