The Maryland Sierra Club and Coalition for Smarter Growth argue that a better way to address the funding backlog would be to shift more of the remaining road dollars to transit.

“Our hope is that the administration will flex its federal surface transportation grant program to eligible transit projects,” said Schwartz.

“Maryland needs to return to smart growth; they simply cannot afford to build new highway infrastructure to fuel more sprawling patterns and maintain what they’ve already built,” said Schwartz.
