The Mobility Planning and Engineering Division (MPED) is responsible for the programming, planning,
engineering design and implementation of Transportation Systems Management & Operations (TSMO)
strategies, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology, and tools needed to better monitor and manage
traffic, incidents and weather events on Maryland’s roadways. The MPED team conducts engineering analysis
and design tasks to support the TSMO and CHART programs with the information required to facilitate the
efficient management of the state’s transportation network to include enhanced freeway-arterial operations.
Securing funding for the above program activities and ensuring conformance to state and federal regulations are
also responsibilities of this division. In addition, MPED supports MDOT SHA to create policies and plans for the
development of future transportation management and operational capabilities.
In August 2020, OTMO institutionalized a TSSO team to provide real time signal timing modifications to support traffic incident management. TSSO activities include:
Focusing on trip reliability to improve mobility, this program maximizes the effectiveness and efficiency of a facility through traffic engineering principles and strategies by:
