[ARCHIVED] CHAIR DAVIS SAYS COUNCIL CELEBRATES GOVERNOR HOGAN'S FORWARD MOVEMENT ON THE

The Prince George’s County Council is elated that Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is advancing the Purple Line into construction, taking yet another step forward with the selection of a contractor for the project.
The Council is working to create walkable, vibrant communities that include a mix of housing, jobs and retail. This work includes developing a premier network of transportation choices to ensure residents can reach their destinations easily and safely, and attract transit-oriented development, especially around the County’s 15 Metro stations.

The Purple Line, a transformative project which will link our communities and job centers together, is Prince George’s County’s number one transit priority. We deeply appreciate the State’s commitment to start project construction in New Carrollton and ensure that the project’s principal operations center will be in Prince George’s County.

We look forward to the groundbreaking.
