Gov. Wes Moore (D) vowed Wednesday to get a multibillion light rail line on track while minimizing new costs. The three-member Board of Public Works approved yet another extension and an additional $148 million in payments to Purple Line Transit Partners for cost overruns associated with delays in construction. “We are firmly committed, firmly committed to making sure we’re getting this critical project back on track and also minimizing future delays and costs increases because they have been real,” said Moore.
