"To create jobs, a modern economy requires modern investments like the ones we are announcing today for the Baltimore region." --Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley announced Sept. 4th nearly $1.5 billion in transportation investments for the Baltimore metropolitan region. The governor also touted $689 million in investments for the Red Line, including $519 million for construction of a new Red Line station. He said the investments will support more than 13,000 jobs.

The Red Line is a 14.1-mile, east-west light rail link between Woodlawn in Baltimore County to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center campus on the east side of Baltimore City.

The governor also announced a new weekend service beginning in December for round trips between Penn Station in Baltimore and Union Station in Washington, D.C.
