MDOT SHA launches new user-friendly website

Project Portal Provides Information on Major Road Improvement Projects

News Release, Maryland Department of Transportation, State Highway Administration

(February 18, 2019) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) today launched a redesigned user-friendly website,, that makes it easier to find information on snow removal, traffic conditions, public meeting dates, construction project updates and traffic alerts.

“We have redesigned our website to be more mobile user-friendly and allow our customers to quickly find needed information,” said Acting MDOT SHA Administrator Tim Smith. “We are modernizing this agency so that Maryland citizens can access our data and services when they need it.”

MDOT SHA’s “Project Portal” feature provides access to ongoing major construction projects across the state, with interactive maps, timelines, and public meeting dates. Visitors can access our STORM mobile application with one tap and access live camera feeds. The new homepage also features quick access to our customer service portal, the Customer Care Management System, to report issues.

The newly improved website includes simple navigation and a clean look designed to improve the user experience online that is streamlined to an ever-increasing audience accessing services using mobile devices. Finding information about local MDOT SHA district offices and maintenance shops, which provide services like pothole repairs, is easier than ever.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
