FEDERAL FUNDING IS BEGINNING TO PAY OFF

Grade crossing separations, protective devices and improved surfaces can all be funded under the Federal Highway Safety Act of 1973 and continued under the Highway Act of 1976. Cooperative efforts by federal, state and local government agencies working with railroads are paying off in an area where railroads formerly were expected to carry virtually the entire protection burden. Accidents and fatalities are dropping. Spending for crossing surfaces has sparked development of new types. Problems with certain funding at national and state levels continue to impede certain projects. The activities of Boston and Maine Railroad working with governments in its region are described.
