Leggett, Roshdieh Join Officials in Urging Federal Judge to Rule on the Purple Line MCDOT

County Executive Ike Leggett joined other Maryland leaders and Purple Line NOW transit activists, at a rally in downtown Silver Spring, to call for a federal judge to issue a ruling allowing the Purple Line to be built in the Washington suburbs, saying a delay in a court case blocking the project is costing taxpayers money. The light-rail project connecting Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties needs a favorable court ruling to get its federal environmental approval reinstated before it can secure $900 million in federal grants and begin major construction.
