[ARCHIVED] MTA To Survey Property Lines

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) issued its Record of Decision (ROD) for the Purple Line project on March 19, indicating that the project has satisfied federal environmental requirements. While the project has not yet received its full funding agreement from FTA (signaling the project is officially approved to move forward), under the law, right-of-way acquisition for the project can begin now.

Property line surveys will begin soon, and Town residents along the alignment will be receiving letters from the State, alerting them that survey crews will be in the neighborhood. The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) says it will not need to buy any Town properties for the Purple Line project and will contact property owners in the next few months where temporary construction easements will be necessary.

Residents are welcome to attend the Town’s Purple Line Mitigation Advisory Group meetings, held the first Tuesday of every month.
