The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and MDOT are in the early stages of preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to study the feasibility and potential impacts of a new high-speed rail system. The high-speed, superconducting magnetic levitation (SCMAGLEV) system is proposed by a private company, Baltimore Washington Rapid Rail (BWRR). The SCMAGLEV system would operate between Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Maryland, with a stop at BWI Marshall Airport.
A series of five Open Houses are being held between 10/14/17 and 10/25/17 to provide opportunities for the attendees to review and comment on the:
- Preliminary alternatives screening analysis results
- Overview of alternatives recommended for detailed study
- Technology and engineering features
- Preliminary station information
A short presentation with a video will start approximately 30 minutes into the meeting. The video will play several times during the Open House hours. Additionally, the Project Team will be available to answer questions as you review maps and other project materials in an Open House format.
