Public Meeting on B&P Tunnel Project

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.
