A New Transportation Proposal Similar to the Red Line Would Connect Baltimore City and Baltimore County

What’s happening?

A 25-year transportation improvement plan includes an estimated $4 billion to build an East-West line connecting Howard County to Eastern Baltimore County and another connecting Towson to Baltimore City, Bryan Spears reports for Maryland Matters. 

What are the details of the proposal?

The plan, which includes 90 major transit proposals, was released by the Baltimore Metropolitan Council—a panel of representatives from seven major jurisdictions, such as Arundel, Baltimore, and Howard Counties. The panel is required by federal law to develop transportation proposals based on population. 

The East-West project is similar to the 14.1 mile Red Line light rail project—killed by Gov. Larry Hogan in 2015— that would have connected Bayview Hospital in East Baltimore to Woodlawn in western Baltimore County.  The new proposed route includes plans for up to 17 miles of transit line that would connect Baltimore City to places like Ellicott City and Woodlawn, and it will likely not follow the exact path outlined in the previous Red Line plan due to new development. 

Anything else I should know? 

The plan is the subject of a series of public hearings that launched last Wednesday in Westminster. The next one will be held on Monday, June 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m at the Hartford County Government Building in Bel Air. The Baltimore meeting will be on Monday, June 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the War Memorial Assembly Hall.
