The facility exists to service all Maryland State Highways, Toll Booth facilities, and Green Spaces. Three additional structures onsite include a material storage building, a hazard material storage shed, and a salt dome.
The configuration of the maintenance building was derived by analyzing the existing flows and relationships of MdTA’s vehicle maintenance and repair operations; proper separation and adjacency requirements; vehicle flow criteria and rate criteria; site access; storage and pickup operations; and staff functions: locker rooms, dispatch areas, 24/7 security, etc.
