The Purple Line is set to receive key funding next week that will help it move forward, The Washington Post reports.
The newspaper reported late Monday night that Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has reached a deal that will bring the new Metro line $900 million in federal funding. The deal is expected to be announced next week.
“Construction of the 16-mile light-rail line linking Montgomery and Prince George’s counties will begin within weeks after the deal is formalized.,” according to the Post.
The Purple Line will run from Montgomery County to Prince George’s County, with 21 stops through places like Silver Spring, the University of Maryland and Beacon Heights, among others.
