Record of Decision

A Record of Decision (ROD) was issued on March 19, 2014 for the Purple Line Project by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). By issuance of the ROD, the FTA has determined that the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act have been satisfied. The FTA is the lead federal agency for the project, while the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) is serving as the project sponsor. The ROD applies to the Preferred Alternative described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and Draft Section 4(f) Evaluation issued on September 6, 2013. On August 2, 2018, FTA modified the ROD to allow early tree-clearing in the vicinity of the Rosemary Hills Elementary School.
