Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has approved the Purple Line light rail project that will connect Bethesda and New Carrollton. But he said the state's contribution to the project will be $168 million instead of $700 million. That will greatly increase the cost to Montgomery and Prince George's Counties.
In his press conference today, Hogan also announced about $2 billion in funding for roads and bridges. That will include funds for widening Interstate 270.
