Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission
WSDOT has announced the availability of approximately $12 million of Highway
Safety Improvement Program federal funding that is set aside for the elimination
of hazards at railway–highway crossings (23 USC 130).
Funding is available for the installation of new crossing protective devices, upgrade of existing crossing signal devices, railroad crossing closure and pedestrian crossing improvements.
The goal of this program is to fund safety improvements to reduce the number of fatalities, injuries and crashes at public grade crossings, which can also include the elimination of grade crossings.
For agencies that own roadways with public crossings including roadways, bikes and pedestrian paths, visit the Department of Transportation's Railway-Highway Crossing Program webpage for details.
