FRA makes $73 million in grant funding for rail projects, operating assistance

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) announced plans on Thursday to administer $73 million in grant funding for capital projects that bolster intercity passenger rail and enhance rail safety. Made available through the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, the grants are designed to couple federal, state and private investments to advance rail projects. Implementing positive train control (PTC), enhancing highway-rail grade crossings, addressing congestion, and repairing or replacing railroad assets were listed as potential examples.
