Project Description

The existing Susquehanna River Rail Bridge is located in Havre de Grace and Perryville, Maryland. The two-track bridge, which is a critical link along Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor (NEC), will eventually need to be rehabilitated or replaced with a new structure to maintain future rail services across the Susquehanna River. The project is proposed to provide future improvements to capacity, trip time, and safety for commuter, freight, and intercity passenger rail services on the NEC consistent with State and Amtrak plans. The proposed project could also improve the navigation channel for marine users. The project area includes the existing Susquehanna River Rail Bridge and its approaches, spanning approximately 2.5 miles on either side of the bridge. In coordination with project stakeholders, regulatory agencies, and members of the public, the project team has developed and is evaluating various alternatives (click here for more information on alternatives development and screening).
