Our Core Priorites

We understand that your travel on the State highways is important and that we are entrusted with your journey. That’s why, under Administrator Gregory Slater, the administration and workers at the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) have established four core priorities.

Communications

We will promptly contact you through the news, social media, the Internet, by phone, in writing and at public meetings about highway conditions, construction, impending projects, and your local and private concerns about our roadways.

Innovation

We will work with our engineers, our line workers, departments of transportation throughout the U.S., and people like you to find new solutions to problems on our roads.

Modernization

We will use all the resources we’re provided to make our highways and systems as current as the very best in the U.S. and across the world.

User Experience

In snow and in sunshine, during your commute and late at night, our staff will work to make your drive on Maryland’s highways safe, quick, and comfortable.
