Protecting & Enhancing the Natural Environment

Chesapeake Bay and Local Waterway Restoration
SHA is committed to improving water quality in the Chesapeake Bay and local waterways. See how we are implementing a wide range of safeguards to protect and restore the Bay. Use our interactive map to explore SHA projects in your area.

Environmental Stewardship & Mitigation
Every SHA project has environmental safeguards built in. Find out here about stewardship and mitigation, the two key principles behind how SHA gives back to Maryland’s environment.

Wildlife Protection
When SHA builds a road, we make sure to consider all possible protections for wildlife in the area. See how we integrate protective measures into projects, from a country road to the Intercounty Connector, to ensure safe passage for motorists and wildlife.
