ANNAPOLIS (Sept. 19, 2017)—Governor Larry Hogan on Monday announced the administration has awarded $38,390,961 in grants for local roads in municipalities and counties from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore. The grants are awarded by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) to jurisdictions based on the state's formula for the distribution of Highway User Revenues (HURs).
Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties, and several towns therein, were all awarded funds;
a grand total of $1,780,998.63. Calvert County was awarded $295,765.22 in addition to $186,984.17 for Chesapeake Beach and $67,658.51 for North Beach. Charles
