Amtrak Baltimore Tunnel Project Advances

Amtrak's effort to replace the aging B&P Tunnels in Baltimore, MD reached a key milestone thanks to an agreement with a consortium of the Kiewit Corporation and J.F. Shea to construct the new tunnel. Work is scheduled to begin in 2026 and it is hoped this will solve a long-running bottleneck on the Northeast Corridor Line (Main Line, Philadelphia-Washington) which dates to the days of the Pennsylvania Railroad
