This Bureau plans for anticipated County-wide transportation needs and ensures a safe, efficient operation of the Baltimore County highway system. It is divided into several divisions:

  • Traffic Engineering maintains traffic regulations, develops traffic control needs and detours.
  • Street Light Program handles requests for new or upgraded street lighting on existing or proposed County roadways.
  • Transportation Planning provides technical assistance to the Department of Planning, and evaluates and recommends specific projects in anticipation of future transportation, land use and economic development needs.
  • Traffic Signal installs and maintains all traffic signals, flashers, and signal systems along the County highway system and some of those on the State highway system in Baltimore County.
  • Traffic Sign and Roadway Marking installs and maintains County traffic signs, paints and marks County roadways.
  • Traffic Calming is a program for slowing traffic on residential roadways.
  • Reserved Handicap Parking Program—Baltimore County jointly administers a Reserved Handicap Parking program with the Maryland Motor Vehicle administration.
  • Residential Permit Parking Program—The intent of this program is to aid those areas where a heavy influx of nonresidents into the area constricts the available on-street parking spaces to the resident.
