LONG-RANGE REVENUE ANALYSIS AS INPUT TO STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLAN DEVELOPMENT -- MARYLAND: A PROGRESS REPORT
The paper presents the results of an in-depth analysis of long-range revenue potential and discusses the Maryland Department of Transportation's state-wide planning approach under this difficult financial situation. In particular, the paper discusses the approach to structuring long-range transportation alternatives, which include assumptions concerning operating and capital expenditures. All of these alternatives will emphasize improvements to existing facilities and reflect the new orientation of the Department's planning process towards meeting transportation needs to the maximum extent possible by improving existing facilities rather than by constructing new ones. The paper also discusses the role of systems planning in the statewide and regional transportation planning process.
