Federal rail infrastructure money to help pay for Baltimore tunnel, Maryland bridge replacements and Penn Station face-lift

November 7, 2023

President Joe Biden outlined $16.4 billion in federal funding Monday for 25 passenger rail projects along Amtrak’s Northeast corridor, including $7 billion for four projects in Maryland — an electrification replacement for the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, the construction of bridges in Baltimore, Harford and Cecil counties, and a major face-lift for Penn Station in Baltimore.
