The Traffic Development and Support Division (TDSD) supports new and expanded programs and practices, and guides the overall statewide traffic-engineering program. Its three major teams and their principal functions are:
The Traffic Engineering Support Team:
The Statewide Studies Team:
The Traffic Policy and Management Team (TPMT) provides technical assistance for work-zone traffic control. TPMT develops guidelines for federal work-zone safety and mobility, guides Transportation Management Plan (TMP) development, provides guidance on work-zone policies, standards, and specifications, and reviews Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plans. TMPT also conducts minor studies related to work zone traffic engineering, collects data, performs analysis and prepares summary reports. TPMT oversees work-zone traffic control training and safety training for law enforcement personnel serving on work-zone details.
The Information Systems Section collects crash data (from State Police MAARS files) and maintains a crash database to support traffic engineering and education. It publishes an inventory of roads statewide (excluding Baltimore City) that is used by law enforcement to locate accidents and assists the State Police in processing the data by developing software. The section produces numerous reports, including the Candidate Safety Improvement Sections, accident profiles on various subjects, summary crash data, and detailed crash listings. It maintains copies of accident reports. The section provides accident data to local governmental agencies.
