Cecil County Strategic Plan

Location: Cecil County, Maryland Client: Cecil County

JMT developed a strategic roadway plan to assist our client manage growth along county roads.

JMT was selected by Cecil County to develop a Strategic Roadway plan for upgrades to roads in the County designated growth corridor to support managed growth.   JMT's strategic plan assisted in determining future roadway improvements, which were needed to meet the demands of growth in the area. The growth corridor is between I-95 and U.S. Route 40; U.S. Route 222 to the former Bainbridge Naval Training Center and the Town of Port Deposit; and north of the Town of Elkton to MD 273.

JMT achieved this strategic roadway plan by performing traffic counts, conducting traffic analysis using HCS, SYNCHRO and the critical lane volume technique, analyzing accident data, and determining roadway and shoulder widths. Travel demand forecasts were also developed using the WILMAPCO regional model. An access management plan was developed for U.S. 40, MD 222, MD 213 and MD 279. Alternatives for the area were developed and reports for both short and long term improvements were developed using Geographic Information System (GIS).

JMT prepared a safety study as part of the project to determine needed improvements along various County roads and also developed cost estimates and priorities for the improvements.

The results of the Cecil County Strategic Roadway Plan provided a guide for the County to manage future growth, while preserving the rural character and agricultural viability of outlying areas of the County.
