DOT FUNDS GRADE CROSSING PROGRAMS

The U.S. Department of Transportation granted financial assistance totaling $6.95 million to eight federally designated high-speed rail corridors. The program will aim to eliminate hazards at public and private highway-rail grade crossings. Funds can be spent on crossing closure; consolidation or grade separation; installation or upgrade of warning devices; improvements to track circuitry, crossing surfaces, crossing sight distances or illumination; installation of advanced train control or traffic control systems; and other related project development, analysis, and engineering activities.
