WBCM is the lead project management support for the Maryland State Highway Administration’s (SHA) One Maryland One Centerline (OMOC) initiative. The OMOC initiative is a response to the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) reporting requirements that call for annual state-level submissions of public roads that includes accurate mileage, lane mileage, and travel information. The resulting data is used as part of the allocation process for Federal-Aid Highway Funds. Since 2012, submissions have included dual carriageways and all publicly maintained roads in accordance with the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAPS-21) Act.
WBCM’s team of professionals is assisting SHA in project management and outreach. Internally, efforts center on identifying SHA stakeholder requirements and ensuring availability of data and software to ensure that all needs are met. Externally, WBCM’s professionals are working with local governments throughout the state to consolidate authoritative road centerline data into a common shared-data environment.
The end result will be a state-wide authoritative road centerline database that will save time and money for the State and all participating jurisdictions.
