Maryland’s Transportation Crisis
Maryland is facing a transportation crisis. Our roads are congested, pollution is rising, and our infrastructure needs repairs. To cut time spent in traffic, boost our economy, and improve our air quality, we need to invest in transportation. Our neighbors are aggressively investing in projects like the Silver Line to Dulles Airport, yet we aren’t moving on our own priorities.
We have great plans for transit projects like the Red Line in Baltimore and the Purple Line in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, as well as expanding MARC, upgrading Metro and connecting the suburbs with rapid transit like the Corridor Cities Transitway, but we haven’t raised the money to make them a reality. Without a state funding solution this year, we’ll miss out in the race for federal matching funds.
