The Post is reporting today that other road projects are taking a back seat to the Purple Line. Money that would have been used to widen other roads will instead be allocated to the Purple Line.
Maryland officials laid out their Purple Line plans — particularly how they intend to pay for the line — as part of the pitch they will make before the regional planning board today requesting that the project be included in its 20-year funding plan.
Another interesting tidbit is that the state documents refer to the Purple Line as light-rail only and make no mention of the bus rapid transit option. So hopefully that controversy has been put to bed.
