Last August, the Purple Line light rail project connecting Montgomery County to Prince George’s was halted by a federal judge considering a lawsuit opposing the project on environmental grounds. The delay is adding millions to the cost of the project, and now Maryland’s Attorney General has filed a motion to force the judge to rule on the matter by June 1, or the project risks being derailed permanently. Kojo speaks with one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, and a Prince George’s County Council member who wants to see the project move forward.
