DOT Awards Grants Under Railroad Crossing Elimination Program

$570 million will go toward updating 400 railroad crossings in 32 states.

The Department of Transportation announced the distribution of the Railroad Crossing Elimination Grant Program, awarding $570 million to 400 projects in 32 states. All of the projects selected are working to address at-grade crossings, places where roads and railways intersect. This funding will be used to upgrade infrastructure at railroad crossings, separating roads and rails with bridges and tunnels or offering suitable improvements when separation is not feasible.

“Every year, commuters, residents, and first responders lose valuable time waiting at blocked railroad crossings – and worse, those crossings are too often the site of collisions that could be prevented,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “We’re improving rail crossings in communities across the country to save lives, time, and resources for American families.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Amit Bose as he heads the Federal Railroad Administration.
  • For discernment for Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the funding of transportation infrastructure projects.
  • For the communities receiving the awards to use them efficiently for the separation of roads and train crossings.
