Public Meeting on B&P Tunnel Project

December 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The B&P Tunnel Project is a federally-funded engineering and environmental study to develop an alternative to the existing B&P Tunnel. This 143-year-old, two-track railroad tunnel is located between the West Baltimore MARC Station and Penn Station along Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor (NEC) in Baltimore, Maryland. The tunnel is owned by Amtrak and also used by Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) trains and Norfolk Southern Railway freight trains. The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) provides an evaluation of three alternatives, including a review of the alternatives, their ability to meet the needs of the Project, and their likely impacts to the social, cultural and natural environments.

The FEIS includes:

  • The Preferred Alternative, including the location of the Intermediate Ventilation Facility Site;
  • Responses to public comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement; and
  • Recommendations for potential mitigation measures to address the documented environmental impacts of the Preferred Alternative.

The public is encouraged to review the FEIS and submit any feedback regarding the document to info@bptunnel.com. A public review period for the document will continue through December 27, 2016.

Project Information Presentations will occur at 6:30 p.m. (Thursday, December 8) and 11:30 a.m. (Saturday, December 10). Informational boards and project staff will be available throughout the meeting period and copies of the FEIS document also will be available for review.

Can’t attend? Meeting materials also will be posted online.
