Transportation and Infrastructure

Maryland’s Fifth Congressional District is one of the fastest growing areas in the State of Maryland.  Congressman Hoyer has worked very closely with state and local officials to ensure that our transportation infrastructure is prepared to meet the needs of Fifth District residents, businesses, and Federal facilities.

Over the years, Congressman Hoyer has helped secure the reconstruction of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, the restoration of the Suitland Parkway, federal funding for Metro rail capital improvements, and the Southern Maryland Commuter Bus Initiative. He continues to secure funding for the ongoing construction of the Purple Line, a 16.2 mile light rail line which will connect Prince George’s County and Montgomery County.

In 2017, Congressman Hoyer sponsored legislation to establish the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission to improve the safety and reliability of Metro. He believes that a sustainable and reliable source of funding is the only way to address Metro’s long-term capital needs.

Hoyer Delivers Remarks at Ribbon Cutting for University of Maryland's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Test Site in Southern Maryland

Good morning. I want to begin by expressing the gratitude all of us feel for Brit Kirwan's service as Chancellor these past twelve years. He has overseen a period of growth, investment, and a reaffirmation of the University System of Maryland's core mission to expand and enhance higher education in our state. When he retires later this year, he will be greatly missed by the entire University System and all those who have worked closely with him, as I have been privileged to do, to make it one of the best public universities in the country.
