Taking Care of Business

The MDOT MTA Purple Line Business Engagement Team recognizes that construction may be disruptive and can cause temporary inconveniences to businesses in the vicinity of construction sites. The Business Engagement Team is responsible for building and nurturing relationships with businesses along the corridor. We are here to help, and will learn the needs of the businesses, emphasize what can be done to respond to their operational concerns, and identify mutually beneficial solutions. This involves establishing strong working relationships, connecting businesses with tools and resources to support their business, and minimizing disruptions during construction activities.
