The Maryland Board of Public Works (BPW) has approved a Program Management Consultant (PMC) service contract for the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) in support of the Baltimore Red Line. 

This eight-year, $100 million contract, awarded to Gannett Fleming, Inc., will enable the project team to advance preliminary engineering activities such as project design, schedule development, and environmental reviews. A General Engineering Consultant contract is expected to be awarded later this summer.

Governor Wes Moore relaunched the Baltimore Red Line in June 2023 with a commitment to deliver the project as quickly as feasible. The Red Line has restarted the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to examine potential environmental impacts from the project. 

The FTA and Maryland Transit Administration will prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Red Line. The review will build upon previous technical work, environmental analysis and engagement activities, as well as recent local and regional planning studies. The SEIS provides the framework with which the Red Line considers changes to address project impacts.
