Sign Up for Targeted Purple Line Project Updates

Construction work will soon begin on the Purple Line Project. Residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up for targeted notifications to keep up to date on construction.

The Purple Line is a 16-mile, 21-station light rail line that will extend from Bethesda to New Carrollton in Prince George's County. It will provide a direct connection to the Metrorail’s Red, Green and Orange Lines at Bethesda, Silver Spring, College Park and New Carrollton. The Purple Line will also connect to MARC, Amtrak and local bus services. The five stations in and around the University of Maryland campus will be a “fare-free” zone for students and faculty.

The project will include the completion of the Capital Crescent Trail between Bethesda and Silver Spring, the completion of the Green Trail along Wayne Avenue to Sligo Creek Parkway, and the construction of a bike path through the University of Maryland campus.
