The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

State trans­porta­tion of­fi­cials have sus­pended new con­struc­tion con­tracts, hir­ing and pro­cure­ment for a pro­posed light rail project.

Trans­porta­tion Sec­re­tary Pete Rahn said Wed­nes­day the steps were nec­es­sary be­cause a judge or­dered fur­ther study of the project’s rid­er­ship es­ti­mates.

Mr. Rahn said Mary­land has filed an ap­peal of Tues­day’s rul­ing, but there’s no time­line for a re­sponse.
