Go Prince George's

Overview

What is Go Prince George’s?

Go Prince George’s is the new Master Plan of Transportation. It implements Plan Prince George’s 2035, the County’s approved general plan, by setting a guiding vision, supporting goals, and measurable actions to transform the County’s transportation network by creating more travel options, reconstructing the County’s streets and roads to meet current and future needs, identifying equitable and sustainable investments in the County’s future, and focusing on the movement of people versus solely the movement of vehicles. Go Prince George’s will update and replace the 2009 MPOT Approved Countywide Master Plan of Transportation and will carry forward or update the transportation recommendations from active area master and sector master plans and recently completed transportation studies.

The Go Prince George’s (formerly Countywide Master Plan of Transportation – Plan 2035 Implementation – MPOT 2035), a countywide functional master plan for guiding transportation infrastructure and network development, will update and replace the 2009 MPOT as well as the transportation facility recommendations from the active area and sector master plans.  

The Prince George’s County Planning Department has initiated a multi-year effort to develop a new and updated Master Plan of Transportation (MPOT). 

Go Prince George’s will also implement the approved general plan, Plan Prince George’s 2035 (Plan 2035).  

Extension of Plan Preparation: On March 21, 2023, the County Council approved a one-year extension of MPOT 2035, to allow the Planning Department to conduct additional legislative outreach and technical analysis, and continue to coordinate with partner agencies.

County Council Initiation: On September 21, 2021, the County Council approved the initiation of the MPOT 2035 Functional Master Plan, as well as the approval of the project’s Recommended Goals, Concepts, and Guidelines and the Public Participation Program.

Planning Board Project Initiation: On July 15, 2021, the Prince George’s County Planning Board initiated the MPOT 2035 Functional Master Plan. The Planning Board’s plan initiation coincided with the transmittal to the District Council for approval, the project’s Recommended Goals, Concepts, and Guidelines, as well as the Public Participation Program.
