Though the high-voltage lines go another way, lower voltage lines
give this biker something to follow.
At photo time this section was actively under consideration for a trails-to-rails
project of a high-speed superconducting maglev train connecting Baltimore and
Washington. In the future the line would perhaps extend to both Richmond,
Virginia and Boston, Massachusetts. As with all such projects understandably
there are also NIMBYs.
Competing for a route in the area is Elon Musk's Hyperloop. During
October 2017 Musk announced Hyperloop construction would begin in Hanover /
Jessup, Maryland at the northeast corner of MD 295 and 175. By the end of
2017 the site (right) showed no change, except the hasily-erected fencing
surrounding a ceremonial plot was beginning to come apart. At photo-left
beyond the trees is a tour bus on MD 295 (B-W Parkway) under which the
Hyperloop is proposed to run.
