As you may know, for the past two years the future of the stop has been endangered by the redeveloper of Laurel Race Track who wants stops there. 

We worked with local residents and the City of Laurel to protect our stop. 

Thanks to all those who helped. Working together is what makes Laurel work!

  The historic rehabilitation of the Laurel train station was one of the "shovel ready" projects completed in President Obama's economic stimulus package. Many Laurel residents ride the MARC train to work daily, and we helped win state funds to add more trains to serve it.

Built in 1884 by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the Laurel Train Station has endured for over 131 years. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places and opened for use by MARC as a train station when the Camden Line was established.

Now, as a result of a development project in Howard County, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is considering closing the Laurel station.

Please join us, and Laurel City Council President Edward Ricks, County Councilmember Mary Lehman, and other concerned residents to voice your opposition to closing the Laurel train stop.
