Md. gets final grant for light rail extension

April 03, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Maryland has received a final $10.3 million grant to help pay for three extensions of the Timonium-to-Glen Burnie light rail line, federal officials said yesterday.

The state plans to open 7.5 miles of rail to Hunt Valley in June, Pennsylvania Station in late summer and Baltimore-Washington International Airport in the fall. The BWI extension will take travelers into the airport terminal.

The latest grant completes an $85 million federal contribution to the $106 million project.
