Annual Mobility Performance

The State Highway Administration (SHA) highway system is the backbone of Maryland’s transportation system, providing mobility and access for people and goods from and through the State of Maryland. Mobility and Economy is one of six key performance areas (KPA) at SHA which aims to “Support Maryland Economy and Communities with Reliable Movement of People and Goods.”

SHA publishes the Maryland State Highway Annual Mobility Report to identify successes, challenges, and strategies being used to improve the transportation services SHA delivers to Marylanders and the traveling public. The intent is to inform the decision-makers, customers and staff at SHA to develop strategic multi-modal congestion management solutions for safe, efficient and reliable transportation of people and goods.
