Two Baltimore transportation projects were denied federal grant money Wednesday.
The first project was expected to improve highway ramps from I-95 and roadwork surrounding the Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's Port Covington redevelopment project.
The second application was to help fund the renovation of the Howard Street Tunnel. The project was aimed to help the flow of freight trains.
Governor Hogan was disappointed in the outcome of both applications.
"Port Covington and the Howard Street Tunnel have the potential to create thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in new economic activity, improving the lives of everyday Marylanders" Hogan said in a statement. "Given the considerable impact these projects will have on the state, the Hogan Administration will seek Fastlane federal funding again next year in order to ensure that these projects are completed."
