Hogan approves Purple Line

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has approved the Purple Line light rail project. It will connect Bethesda and New Carrollton via Silver Spring.

The state funding will be less than anticipated, however. Hogan says Maryland will contribute only $168 million, not the $700+ million originally forecast. That will increase the time of travel, and put a greater burden on Montgomery and Prince George's Counties to make up the difference.
