ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan is planning to make an announcement relating to transportation in Baltimore.

Hogan has scheduled a Thursday morning news conference at the West Baltimore MARC station. A spokesman for Hogan on Wednesday declined to provide specific details about the announcement.

Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn is scheduled to attend, along with Maryland Transit Administrator Paul Comfort.

In June, the Hogan administration announced it would not move forward with a proposed light rail project in the city known as the Red Line.

Rahn said at the time that the east-west public transit line in Baltimore with a $2.6 billion price tag was “fatally flawed.” The Hogan administration has been looking at other options to address transportation concerns in the city.
