My friend who works at Arundal Mills told me that they have finalized plans to extend the Baltimore light rail to Arundel Mills Mall. I think it will branch off from the Cromwell Station.
Your friend is mistaken. The only transit project in the Baltimore area that has an active study underway is the Red Line Corridor Transit Study. It is true that there was a regional rail system report prepared back in October of 2002 with service to Arundel Mills, however little has come of that report beyond Red Line Corridor Transit Study.
Actually there is
the "Baltimore Area Regional Rail Plan" which would consitute a major
expansion of rail transit in the region which does
include service to Arundel Mills. As this is a 40 year projection, it is far from certain how much, if any, of this ultimate system will actually get built. You can do a search on the Baltimore Area Regional Rail Plan ( from the MTA web site) and find it. The Red Line study may, in fact be further along than the rest of the plan, but the rest is
still out there.
