Wallace Montgomery was retained by the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) to complete the East Elkton Traffic Circulation and Safety Plan, which examines transportation improvements to three corridors in Elkton, Maryland. The study also examines existing and proposed land uses near the MD 279/I-95 Interchange and evaluates existing traffic movements that relate to toll avoidance at the I-95 Maryland/Delaware line.
Development of the plan is a community-driven process with various stakeholders including WILMAPCO, the Town of Elkton, Cecil County, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration, Amtrak, property owners, residents and visitors. To facilitate data management, timely coordination and collaboration among stakeholders, and increased transparency in plan development, WM is using a cloud-based engagement platform with project data and deliverables are all stored and categorized in a central location East Elkton Traffic Circulation and Safety Plan (arcgis.com). The platform allows the team to engage public users and stakeholders by providing access to documents, plan concepts and interactive maps and real-time access to the project and the input used in the plan development.
