Maryland Gov. Wes Moore announced last week that the state had awarded more than $11.5 million in federal highway safety grants as part of a statewide focus on reducing roadway crashes and fatalities.
The funds, distributed by the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration’s Highway Safety Office, are part of Moore’s efforts to increase safety on the state’s roadways through traffic safety initiatives.
“These investments are critical to building and maintaining a safe, reliable and efficient transportation system in Maryland,” Moore said. “Our administration is committed to partnering with local governments, officials and advocacy groups to reduce roadway injuries and fatalities and to ensure that highway safety remains a top priority across the state.”
