The emergence of state departments of transportation since Hawaii's in 1959 has been for a multitude of reasons: emphasis on modal interdependency, socioeconomic implications of growth in the urban and suburban areas, and so forth. The need exists to address transportation not as simply a fringe benefit but as a social need. Mobility in an important factor, but integration with other societal goals takes on increasing importance. This paper discusses the role of state DOTs in addressing and providing leadership in the transportation area and gives examples of how one state, Maryland, has assumed its role.
