Counties, Baltimore City seek funds to repair potholes

— ANNAPOLIS — Working to help local governments fix potholes and repair roadways damaged by this year’s brutal winter weather, Governor Martin O’Malley has announced that all 23 Maryland counties and Baltimore City have applied for $10 million in State funds by Thursday’s deadline. 

The special fund allocation includes $228,151 for Allegany County; $292,993 for Garrett County; $360,681 for Washington County and $554,274 for Frederick County.

The largest allocation was $1,150,721 for Baltimore County, according to the Maryland Department of Transportation, Office of Finance.

The funding, approved by Governor O’Malley and members of the General Assembly during the recent legislative session, is from Maryland’s Transportation Trust Fund.

“It was a long, harsh winter for all of us, but in true Maryland spirit, State and local officials pulled together to ensure our roadways were safe and passable,” said Governor O’Malley.

“Unfortunately, our work is not done as crews continue to fill potholes and repair roadways damaged by the extreme weather conditions. I’m proud that my colleagues in the General Assembly worked closely with us to secure this funding to help local jurisdictions repair their roadways and continue efforts to enhance traffic safety for Maryland motorists.”

To be eligible to participate in the one-time transportation grant program, all County Governments and Baltimore City were required to apply for the funding by April 23 and to agree to use their grant solely for repairs to local roads damaged by the recent winter weather.

With all jurisdictions having applied, the funding from the Transportation Trust Fund now will be split among the 24 jurisdictions based on the number of roadway miles maintained by each local government. The State funds will be distributed over the next few weeks.
