Congressman Brown Secures Maryland Infrastructure Priorities in Transformational Surface Reauthorization

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04), the sole Maryland member on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, praised the inclusion of 11 requested projects in the Fourth Congressional District and across the state as part of the transformational INVEST in America Act. These projects cumulatively total approximately $82.55 million of the $130.3 million directed federal investment in Maryland.

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee advanced the INVEST Act early Thursday morning, following a 19-hour marathon markup. In addition to longstanding priorities from Congressman Brown to modernize our nation’s infrastructure, the bill includes member-designated projects for local investment.

“Building back better starts at the local level with projects that invest in transit, in our communities and improve overall quality of life. For too long, we’ve allowed our infrastructure to go unfixed and underinvested in. Funding for these state and local projects represent longstanding transportation priorities finally coming to fruition,” said Congressman Brown. “Working together with my colleagues in the Maryland Congressional delegation, state and local leaders, and the Biden Administration we will deliver for our communities and create the 21st-century infrastructure they deserve.”

Among the eleven projects funded by Congressman Brown, he secured more than $18 million for improvements to the New Carrollton Metro/MARC/Amtrak and future Purple Line station. This funding will help modernize a critical multimodal transit hub for the National Capital Region through right-of-way improvements and foster transit-oriented development needed to create more walkable, green communities.

Congressman Brown also secured $2 million for future B&P Tunnel construction and improvements. This funding will help foster and encourage commuter rail service throughout the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan regions.
