What is causing increased traffic congestion in Frederick?

Traffic flow is the Town’s most pressing transportation challenge. Many of Frederick’s key roadways lack turn lanes, which causes traffic backups, congestion, and collisions, especially during peak travel times. With recent and projected population growth, the number of vehicles on the roads will only increase, making the problem worse. Adding auxiliary turn lanes and making other related intersection improvements would help improve traffic flow and enhance safety for motorists and pedestrians. Funding is also needed to help improve snow removal, address year-round pothole repairs, and expand the Town’s multimodal transportation options.
