Baltimore’s Red Line light rail project is still scheduled to start construction a few years from now, but you can already see a rendering of what it will roughly look like in action. To complement the Red Line Open Houses recently held by the MTA, the MTA now has uploaded a video to YouTube that aims to give Baltimoreans a sense of where the tracks will be, what will happen to areas around the stations, how above ground stops can be accessed, and much more.
The video follows a single eastward journey from the line’s westward terminus, through West Baltimore, Downtown, and East Baltimore to it’s eastern terminus at Bayview. Even though the MTA is still collecting feedback before construction begins, the narrator goes into considerable detail on why the Red Line is being built where and how it is, and what is yet to be decided. The simulation animation is very lifelike and easy to follow.
