Senators want to know if CSX plans to revive Howard Street Tunnel project

Maryland’s U.S. senators asked CSX Corp. Thursday if it is considering reviving the long-awaited expansion of the aging Howard Street Tunnel.

“As the Port of Baltimore continues to see record growth both of international cargo and volume, a solution to the Howard Street Tunnel bottle-neck is more important than ever,” Democratic Sens. Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin said in a letter to James M. Foote, president and CEO of CSX Corp.

“We hope that you agree and look forward to hearing from you regarding CSX’s plans for the Howard Street Tunnel project.”

The letter was also signed by the Democratic members of the state’s U.S. House delegation.
