DOT Announces $573 Million for Updated Railroad Crossings

Secretary commends safety efforts as part of Railroad Crossing Elimination Program.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a Notice of Funding Opportunity last week, making $573 million in grant money available for projects that improve railroad crossings. The funding is available through the new Railroad Crossing Elimination Program, which was put in place by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and seeks to connect roads and walkways safely either under or over railroads as opposed to directly across them. 

“In too many communities across America, outdated railroad crossings are unsafe, result in lengthy wait times, and can even create significant delays in our supply chains,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “With resources from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we can improve rail crossings and help people and goods get where they need to go more safely.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s wisdom in the funding of infrastructure projects.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he addresses transportation concerns across the nation.
  • For transportation officials as they address the safety of railroad crossings.
