Maryland Hosts Purple Line Industry Forum!

On May 15, 2013, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) hosted an industry forum for the Maryland/National Capital Purple Line, a light rail line to operate along a 16-mile east-west corridor from Bethesda in Montgomery County to New Carrollton in Prince George's County.

The forum included a series of presentations on the scope and key technical considerations of the Purple Line, its status in the environmental and engineering processes, and Maryland's financial and public-private partnership framework and schedule. If you missed the Forum, or just want to take another look at the information that was presented, see links below.
