Berliner Purple Line

Councilmember Berliner Talks Hogan’s Purple Line Decision (VIDEO)

In this MyMCMedia Extra, Montgomery County Councilmember Roger Berliner said Hogan’s Purple Line decision is a positive announcement but “we need to know the details.”

Hogan said, at a news conference on June 25, the project will require an additional investment from both Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.

“A little more we can do. A lot more; I don’t think so,” Berliner said.

The Governor also announced a nearly $2 billion investment in improving roads and bridges across the state. He said one of the improvements would be to reduce congestion on Interstate 270 in both Montgomery and Frederick counties.

According to a news release from the governor’s office, today’s conference was “following through on his campaign pledge to provide funding for highways and state-owned local roads.”

  • $790 million for 10 projects that support economic development
