WASHINGTON, D.C. — Maryland transportation officials gathered engineering, financial and transit firms Monday to come up with ideas for ways the private sector can help the state build and pay for a $2.6 billion rail line through Baltimore, the Washington Post reported. The proposed line could end up competing against a Purple Line, which would run through the Washington, D.C. suburbs, for limited construction money.
The state is seeking federal aid to fund half of both projects, which may put them in competition with each other at a national level. For the full story, click here.
