There is relatively little freight traffic on that stretch at the moment, due in part to the current tunnel. There are no current plans for an increase in the near future, but the new tunnel is being designed with the clearances to accommodate any type of freight train.

Whether the existing tunnel will continue to have any trains at all is unknown. There has been talk of having a pedestrian park, or even filling it back in.

Those transport organizations really need to sort out their logos. Good god.

The modern design is always welcome though. Welcome to the 21st, USA.

Cool!

The original trains were a joint thing with Miami too I think.

Dirt will soon begin to fly on the Purple Line construction project.

Gov. Larry Hogan’s office notified Montgomery County late Wednesday night that it has scheduled a groundbreaking at 10 a.m. in the Hyattsville area in Prince George’s County.

D.C. streetcar's Benning Road extension moves forward with engineering solicitation

Quote:
With an infusion of District funding for 2018, the Benning Road streetcar expansion and associated transportation improvements are moving forward.

The D.C. Department of Transportation in late September issued a request for qualifications for planning and engineering of the 2.4-mile eastward extension of the streetcar along Benning Road NE between Oklahoma Avenue and Benning Road Metro station

Appeals Court Rules in Favor of State, Federal Governments in Purple Line Case

Quote:
Judges reverse lower court’s ruling to conduct new environmental study
Quote:
The major legal challenge to Maryland’s Purple Line has fallen in the U.S. Court of Appeals.

In an opinion issued Tuesday, judges on the federal court in Washington, D.C., ruled that the Federal Transit Administration and Maryland Transit Administration properly studied the impact Metro’s problems would have on the light-rail project being built in Maryland. As a result, the judges ruled, the transit agencies would not have to conduct a new environmental study to examine other potential routes for the Purple Line.
