Magnetic High Speed Train to DMV?

Got this from our councilman Dr. Calvin Ball’s newsletter. Thanks for his effort informing the community. This is great news.  

Superconducting Magnetic Levitation (SCMAGLEV) Project

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential impacts of constructing and operating a high-speed superconducting magnetic levitation (SCMAGLEV) system between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD with an intermediate stop at BWI Airport. The EIS is being prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as amended, and other applicable regulations and procedures. For more information on what a SCMAGLEV system looks like, click here.


As part of an ongoing effort to keep stakeholders informed and gather input throughout the planning process, the second round of Open Houses concludes on Saturday, April 8, 2017 10am-12pm – Courtyard Marriott Washington, DC/U.S. Capitol, 1325 2nd Street NE, Washington DC. Public comments are also being accepted via email. Send written comments:  SCMAGLEV Project, c/o John Trueschler, Maryland Transit Administration, 6 St. Paul Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.
