The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board voted on Tuesday to solidify both its short- and long-term laundry lists of projects — including everything from highway expansion to public transportation revamps — despite strong opposition from transit advocates.
The board’s 10 voting members — which include a representative from each of the six counties surrounding Baltimore, a representative of the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), representatives for Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley, and one for a local transit agency — voted to approve the two plans by near-unanimous consent.
Carroll County representative Mary Lane was not in attendance and did not record a vote. All present representatives voted yes on both plans.
