Roadway Floods in Maryland Caused More Than $15M in Economic Losses Last Year. These Projects Could Help
A new report puts a dollar value on what it means to get stuck on flooded roads in Maryland. In the first eight months of 2020, the economic cost of motorist and freight delays was nearly $15.1 million, according to the study, in which researchers analyzed the effect of flooding on about 20% of state-maintained roadways, or about 15,000 lane miles. The report was completed by strategic consulting group ICF, commissioned by The Pew Charitable Trust.
