Purple Line, Bethesda, MD
Traylor, as a member of the design-build team for Purple Line Transit Partners (PLTP), has been selected for the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) Purple Line Project. The PLTC team of Fluor/Lane/Traylor will have an approximately $2 billion contract for the design and construction of the 16.2 mile light rail transit system under a Public-Private agreement (P3).
The new Purple Line will extend from Bethesda in Montgomery County to New Carrollton in Prince George’s County, Maryland. It will provide a direct connection to the MTA’s current Metrorail system, as well as to Maryland Area Rail Commuter (MARC), Amtrak, and local bus services. The Purple Line will link Bethesda, Silver Spring, Takoma/Langley Park, the University of Maryland at College Park, and New Carrollton. Twenty-one stations are planned along the route.
The Purple Line line is currently scheduled to open for service in 2022. For more information about the project, visit MTA’s website by clicking here.
