Maryland Transit Administration completes portion of double-track project


Last week, Maryland Transit Administration’s (MTA) Hamburg Street light-rail station officially opened for full-time use, thanks to the completion of a double-track project on the system’s south end.

Since 1998, the station was open only for Baltimore Ravens football games and other M&T Bank Stadium special events; under the single-track system, “operational issues” made adding an additional stop at Hamburg street “very difficult” without creating systemwide scheduling problems, according to a prepared statement.

The north-end double-track project is scheduled to be complete by year end.
