Amtrak has taken a major step toward building a planned West Baltimore tunnel, the federally subsidized passenger rail company announced Tuesday. Kiewit/J.F. Shea Joint Venture, a construction supergroup made up of two separate companies, was awarded a $1 billion-plus contract to bore two new tunnel tubes underneath West Baltimore as part of a more than 10-year effort to upgrade passenger rail service in the region.
