Amtrak Grants Contract to Construct Baltimore's New Frederick Douglass Tunnel

February 6, 2024 (Baltimore, US)

With the selection of Kiewit/J.F. Shea Joint Venture to construct the brand-new, 
cutting-edge passenger rail tunnel that will serve electrified Amtrak and MARC commuter trains, 
Amtrak has accomplished significant milestone for the Frederick Douglass Tunnel Programme.

The centrepiece of Amtrak's Frederick Douglass Tunnel Programme, 
which aims to modernise and improve roughly 10-mile stretch of the Northeast Corridor (NEC), is this generational investment.

Tunnel building is expected to start in 2026.
