In the Baltimore-Washington corridor, transportation is vital to attracting workers and conducting business.
- The FMA helped the state secure a $10-million, federal TIGER grant to widen Route 175 beside Fort Meade and assisted successful efforts by federal, elected officials to secure MILCON funds to improve roads on post.
- FMA's Transportation Committee is currently exploring options to benefit the Baltimore Washington Parkway (MD Route 295) by transferring ownership from the National Park Service to the State of Maryland. The “Parkway” was designed for a maximum of 50,000 trips per day. In reality, it has become a “highway” carrying 120,000 trips per day with an annual average of 547 accidents and six fatalities.
To make an impact on the region's roads, contact the FMA General Manager to be a part of this committee.
