Dear Friends,

Important updates have just been released on the MAGLEV project.

I have mentioned before that 
that the  Maryland Department of Transportation is evaluating constructing and operating a high-speed superconducting magnetic levitation (SCMAGLEV) system  between Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland with an intermediate stop at BWI Airport. 

I weighed in with my strong concerns on this project in the  scoping report and will continue to raise my concerns . It is crucial for our community to members to weigh in on this project as well. 

The project website has been updated. MDOT has narrowed the project down to three potential alignments -- all along either the Baltimore Washington Parkway or Amtrak rail line. The project website now includes an interactive map, a comment form, and a link to a video describing the environmental study process.

An Open House will take place TOMORROW, Saturday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m. at Bowie State U. The only other Open House in Prince George's County will take place on Tuesday, October 24, at 5:00 p.m. at Laurel High School. Additional Open Houses are taking place in D.C. and Baltimore.

I strongly recommen d attending one of the upcoming Open Houses and signing up to  receive  email updates on the project. Please also send your written comments on this project directly to the Maryland Department of Transportation:
