Federal Railroad Administration Announces New Funding Opportunity with CRISI Program
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is making $244 million available for the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program. Selected projects will increase the safety, efficiency, and reliability of rail transportation by addressing congestion, highway-rail grade crossings, short-line railroad infrastructure, passenger rail capital assets and railroad safety technology. The Notice of Funding Opportunity is available at https://www.fra.dot.gov/eLib/
“The Ohio Rail Development Commission was successful in partnering with a railroad on the last round of CRISI Grant opportunities,” said Matthew Dietrich, Executive Director of the Ohio Rail Development Commission. “This program is a great example of the FRA’s commitment to continually address railroad safety and infrastructure concerns and a wonderful opportunity to leverage private and state resources for rail improvements in Ohio,” he said.
If any eligible railroad owner or operator in the State of Ohio is interested in partnering with the Ohio Rail Development Commission on an application, please contact Tom Burns at [email protected] or 614-644-0293.
