Moving the Red Line Forward

Moving the Red Line Forward

Tuesday, July 19, 2011, 12:00 - 1:30 PM

The proposed Red Line light-rail transit project – a 14 mile, east-west corridor connecting the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Campus, Canton, Fells Point, Inner Harbor East, downtown Baltimore, West Baltimore, Edmondson Village and Woodlawn - has just won key federal approval to begin more detailed planning and preliminary engineering. The proposed line will link up with the existing Light Rail, Metro subway, and MARC train lines, creating a comprehensive transportation system.

This next planning stage will incorporate many of the items within the groundbreaking Red Line Community Compact. These include efforts to put Baltimore to work, community-centered station design, supporting local businesses, and incorporating a "green track” and energy conservation measures.

Join us to learn more about this new phase of planning as well as perspectives on community and business engagement.
