The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Railroad Administration have announced who will receive grants under the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) program.
The program, which is awarding $248.5 million to 32 projects in 27 states, supports state and local railroad infrastructure projects in areas such as track safety, railroad crossing construction and repair and bridge rehabilitation.
The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, or FAST Act, authorizes the CRISI program. The program required rural projects to receive a minimum 25% of the available funding, and in this round they received nearly 50% of the funds, or up to $127.7 million. Fifteen of the projects were in economically distressed locations known as Opportunity Zones.
The full list of grant recipients is available here.
