BWI Amtrak Rail Improvement
BWI Rail Station Improvements and Fourth Track Project
The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) received a grant from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to advance conceptual engineering and to prepare a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) environmental assessment (EA) for station and track improvements associated with the BWI Marshall Airport Rail Station.
The project includes construction of a new platform, improvements to the current station with possible multi-level transit oriented development and addition of 9 miles of fourth track along the Northeast Corridor Line. The general project area is defined as a 500-foot linear corridor centered on the existing rail line between the Odenton Station and Halethorpe Station, for a distance of approximately 10 miles.
The Environmental Assessment and Draft Section 4(f) Evaluation is available at the link below.
This project is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
