Updated - 3 p.m. - Dirt will soon begin to fly on the Purple Line construction project.

Gov. Larry Hoganís office notified Montgomery County late Wednesday night that it has scheduled a groundbreaking at 10 a.m. Monday in the Hyattsville area in Prince Georgeís County.

The Purple Line would connect Bethesda to New Carrollton in Prince Georgeís County along a 16.2-mile route east to west route. It will be built under a 36-year, $5.6 billion contract the state signed last year with a private team of construction and finance companies known as Purple Line Transit Partners.

Here's the alignment. They're going to route this right through the campus of the University of Maryland?
