By Stacy M. Brown | NNPA Newswire

(NNPA) – During a trip to Baltimore on Monday, Jan. 30, President Joe Biden announced plans to replace the 150-year-old Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, which is a key part of the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

The White House said the project would solve the Northeast Corridor’s major rail bottleneck between Washington, DC and New Jersey, create “good-paying union jobs,” improve reliability, reduce commute times, and improve safety and resilience.

The program is expected to create 30,000 jobs, including 20,000 direct jobs in construction, most of which do not require a college degree.
