Ready To Build: Susquehanna River Bridge
The Ready To Build campaign showcases five critical investments – including the Susquehanna River Rail Bridge – that are vital to the realization of a renewed, modern passenger rail system. Connecting Perryville and Havre de Grace, MD, the century-old Susquehanna River Rail Bridge is the longest moveable bridge on the NEC and major bottleneck. The two-track bridge will be replaced by two new high-level bridges with a total of four tracks, allowing for speeds up to 160 mph and eliminating the need to open for maritime traffic.
